Eastpak asked me to work on one of their bags for the Tag My Bag series.
For the past 10 years I have been traveling a lot.
Living and working in Brazil, Argentina, Australia, and now in Indonesia, I have been invited to take part in countless solo and group exhibitions around the globe.
So trust me, I know how important it is to travel with a good bag.
That’s why I love Eastpak.
Their products are strong and reliable, and I don’t have to worry about my stuffs being broken or lost when I fly abroad.
Just to make it clear, they don’t pay me to say that, I genuinely think that their bags are awesome…
More about Eastpak
Nicolas Pinelli is a street art enthusiast and activist, who works for several media in Europe, from Last Concept to Graffiti Art magazine to more.
He also works for Eastpak, and asked me to do a bag for the brand, as part of their Tag My Bag series.
The idea behind the project is to have various street artists such as Colorz, Le Cyclop, Shuckone, or myself to work one a bag, and turn it into a personal artwork.
The talented and cool photographer John Carriere was appointed to direct a nice video of my painting session.
I already met John last year when he came to film a video interview during my solo exhibition in Marseille.
I really enjoy the slick result of the video, and how John managed to capture the good vibes and creativity feeling of the drawing session. Good job John!
For this Tag My Bag artwork, I challenged myself to produce an inspirational and clean artwork, with the use of one white Posca pen only.
The bag was a cool material to work on, and you can now buy the final artwork on Ebay.
This Eastpak by Mega is available until December 4th, so hurry up!
