In the year 2017 if you’re not familiar with GraphersRock, that seriously needs to change. He’s the creative mind behind some of the worlds best looking sneakers; as well as the visual designer behind some of our all-time favorite art-pieces. When it comes to Tokyo-based designers, I’d even argue that not many come close to his prowess, but that’s just my opinion. From his work with musicians such as Tofubeats, all the way to big name brands such as Puma, GraphersRock’ work defines the very subcultures that define us.
Pairing up with fellow Tokyo-based creative and designer ‘Nukeme’, the duo have managed to reinvent some of the worlds most iconic street fashion brands. In their joint exhibit which begins today at the Shinjuku GANKA Gallery, the pair have glitched and stitched brands Supreme and COMME des GARÇONS, entirely in the name of art. After growing tired of the recent culture surrounding Supreme, GraphersRock reached out to Nukeme to slightly alter his collection of bogo hats in an effort to differentiate, whilst still paying tribute to the brand he loves.
Nukeme is a specialist in glitch arts, and you can definitely see this in the slightly off-tempo styles that he defines this latest exhibit with. It’s beauty in the little details, and we’re with it the whole way. If you’re interested in checking out the full collection, as well as the exhibit, you’ll find it at the below location with the times attached:

It’s super exciting to see where this exhibit lands the two Tokyo-based creatives, especially as we begin to see them appearing in more and more places. If you want to check out further information on the upcoming event, head over to the official webpage located here.
