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.
I really enjoy the video.
John managed to capture the good vibes and creativity feeling during the 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 provides a nice feeling to work on. I like the idea of a raw canvas people can use to travel.
This Eastpak by Mega was sold on eBay.
