TAG MY BAG
Eastpak by Mega
Eastpak asked me to work on one of their bags for the Tag My Bag series.
Why I love Eastpak?
For the past 10 years I travelled a lot.
I used to live and work in Brazil, Argentina, and Australia. Today I am based in Indonesia. Throughout the years I took part in countless solo and group exhibitions around the globe.
I know how important it is to travel with a good bag. This is why I love Eastpak.
Their products are strong and reliable, and I don’t have to worry about broken stuffs when I fly abroad.
Let’s make it clear that they don’t pay me to say that. I genuinely think that their bags are awesome…

Eastpak and Mega video
Eastpak appointed the talented photographer John Carriere to direct a video of my painting session.
I already met John last year when he came to film an interview during my solo exhibition in Marseille.
John managed to capture the good vibes during my drawing session.

Behind the artwork
Learn more about how I worked on the bag.
When I drew this artwork, I only had a single white Posca pen. The idea was to do a slick drawing without using a lot of tools.
The bag was a cool material to work on. The texture had a nice touch, and I like the idea of people travelling with my raw canvas.
This Eastpak by Mega was sold on eBay.
