The only direction we were given on this one was to use Black and Caterpillar Yellow as our only colors, so we had a good time creating this fun “CAT” piece at MAPS Backlot in the Wynwood Arts District in Miami. Quake handpainted this in about 3 hours, prior to the event, and the fine people of Caterpillar were able to enjoy it while they dined and socialized the night away. Thanks all!
Our second collaboration with New Era and Cool J’s, for a series of snapback hats based on our own imaginary Miami sport teams. Featuring some of our faves: Brian Butler, David Iglesias, Jessy Nite, and Quake. Special limited run, available in 3 colorways each, they sold out quick! And the Underdogs win again…
Our biggest “collaboration” yet, we opened this mural up for all passerby to participate in. In conjunction with MLB’s All Star Game Weekend in Miami, Adidas wanted to create an experience around the unveiling of 5 new sneakers & cleats. Our job was to create a “Miami-style” mural, for Miamians of all kinds to participate in, as well as a graffiti-style wall with the phrase “Here To Create”, customized displays for the shoes, and hand-painted champagne bottles for the 10 All Stars under Adidas’ wing. Easy. Thanks to MAPS Productions for an amazing venue, Adidas Baseball, Oasis Jae for the stunning photography, Rob & Lauren at Etzel Agency for making it go, and the artists: Quake, Suarezism, Atomik, Pucho, Arive, and Crook. It was an honor.
Amazing project we curated with New Era and Cool J’s, a local chain, bringing 4 of our artists’ visions onto hand embroidered snapback hats. Also put together a fun gallery show to highlight the hats and the artist’s works, titled “Locals Only” during Art Basel 2014. Thanks Abstrk, Atomik, Pucho and Quake for the amazing designs, Peter Vahan for the photos here, Felix over at Cool J’s for the vision, and Doron and Steven at Midpoint for allowing us the space for the show. We hope to be involved in more projects like this in the future!
