This past fashion week was a busy one for us! Right after the DKNY gig, we were asked to do some graffiti in the middle of Times Square for a Sunglass Hut pop-up event for fashion week called Bling City. This was a rare opportunity to paint in the center of New York City! We had limited time and a limited color palette to work with but we were able to pull it off at the end! Tons of tourists took photos of the process and many thought we were just there tagging illegally which drew quite the crowd. We also designed some custom airbrushed t-shirts for the staff as well. Take a look at some photos of the work and the event below:
Last year, we worked with Google and R/GA on some custom graffiti artwork for their NY Big Tent 2012 Event. We were asked to decorate the bland walls of a freight elevator that everyone had to take to get to the rooftop where the event was taking place. We painted two series of stage flats with the word “NEW” and “YORK” across each that was hung directly across from each other in the elevator. We thank Google & the agency for inviting us to be a part of this important event. You can see a video further down below that includes clips of some of the speakers of the event.
“On September 19, 2012 Google hosted Big Tent NYC, a one-day event focusing on the Internet’s impact on creativity and culture. Big Tent brought together leaders in music, technology, arts and entertainment to discuss the challenges and opportunities of a new media world. The program was be followed by a rooftop reception and special unveiling by Cirque du Soleil.
The event was part of Google’s worldwide series addressing the Internet and society.”
