Highsnobiety blogged this a while ago and I’ve not had a chance to get it on CTR until now. Artists Verbal and Yoon of Ambush Design sat down and talked about their art recently at the RSVP Gallery in Chicago.
Both of these artists fit perfectly into our recent posts about influencers, and are part of a small group of people innovating and creating content rather than consuming it.
The Tokyo-based design collective was started in 2002 by VERBAL and YOON. Inspired by the phrase “ANYTHING GOES”, they draw ideas from the many creative outlets in Tokyo to produce original designs.
The RSVP Gallery is a luxury boutique art gallery offering merchandise which doubles as art. Their content is epitomised by artists like Verbal & Yoon, as well as KAWS, Jeff Koons, Mark Newson and more. They also showcase a lot of rare and original items from designers like BAPE, Original Fake, Levi Strauss, Louis Vuitton and more.
Are you a Verbal & Yoon fan? If so, what is your favourite piece? And if not, who do you prefer? Let us know in the comments or on Facebook!
