I was tapped on the shoulder to create an original and eye grabbing installation for the Dickiesgirl booth at the Las Vegas MAGIC Show in February. Here's the video of the process:
I was given 500 pairs of denim in 23 colorful styles to pull off the unique art piece.
I decided to do two separate walls of denim. The first was a colorful spectrum blend starting in the middle with white denim that peacefully transformed from light and pastel colors to darker hues and bold colors in either direction.I chose to spray paint large graffiti text like: MAN, COI and other words that refer to my street art name and affiliated crews.
On the second wall of denim, the pants were arranged in non-sequential format. The result was a much more abstract design.
The installation at MAGIC was a success to say the least.
Thanks to Migs and Wence for assisting me to get this done on time!
Look out for Man One custom Dickiesgirl denim soon to a store near you!
