Only once in a NEW MOON are we fortunate enough to see great minds come together in such a meaningful way that it can completely change a landscape forever. Sigmund Freud and Carl Jung. Kanye West and Jay-Z. EARTHQUAKE & TYPHOON. It’s such a rare occurrence for great minds to combine forces because when you factor in time constraints, money, plus enormous egos, the probability of such a rare occurrence to make things happen is slim to none. That is why when something so monumental does happen, we must embrace the moment and appreciate the scarcity taking place before our very eyes.
Keith Hufnagel teaming up with Japanese artist Haroshi is no exception. Keith Hufnagel has been a pioneer of modern skateboarding fashion going back to his bowl cut days in the Bay Area. Haroshi with his breathtaking art made from discarded skate decks is one of the most progressive artists of the 21st century. So who humbles who? Each with great admiration of one another can result in only the finest pieces of art imaginable.
A few of months ago, Huf teamed with Haroshi and DLX, showcased quite a memorable art exhibit here in Los Angeles. The video brought to us by HYPEBEAST, gives a little insight on the process and how this awe-inspiring art exhibit came about.
Via Hypebeast: Having first taken time out to speak with Keith Hufnagel regarding the recent HUF x Haroshi x DLX collaboration, our latest HBTV feature highlights the progression of the project from the perspective of famed artist, Haroshi. From beginning to end, Haroshi discusses the initial approach from Hufnagel regarding the project, the development of the three-part collaboration and the process of actualizing each piece. The artist discusses the intense thought and brainstorming that went into every piece, as well as the logic for choosing to work with DLX boards. A project that began from mutual respect for each parties respective body of work, art, and speciality, the retrospective glimpse at each member’s contribution is a testament to the impressive end result. Also seen throughout the video are rare shots taken by Brandon Shigeta in Haroshi’s Japanese studios which paint a vivid picture of his process.
