My pops made it very clear at an early age the more you know the more you’re worth . He would say this while my brother and I would be washing the car , cutting the grass , cutting wood for his projects , etc . The saying has been so engrained in my mind that I catch myself doing all types of wild shit I wouldn’t normally attempt ( building stair cases , setting up a basketball court , etc. ). The practice of mold making has recently become my latest addiction and favorite excuse to throw on the away message . From candles to incense holders , all objects in the studio have become a target . What was first a sandwich bag filled with cement has now become full on collectible objects that look almost identical to the real thing via wax , cement , plaster , etc . I have no clue where this obsession will lead me to , but it’s fun as hell and I’m actually getting better . . . Plus , who wouldn’t want their own 1 of 1 @Kaws Companion cement incense holder ? ( not for sale nor producing for public )

A retail space where the @side pro.ject brand would live and a creative workshop that everyone could access . Screen printing , embroidery , and heat press machines with all types of fonts , logos , colors , and apparel blanks to choose from . The workshop would be based off renting a table per hour or day for a single person or party and you’d have a creative team member at your table to help execute your idea into product . Everything from Converse Chuck Taylor’s to t shirts .... I’ve shared this idea with a few friends and mentors over the last months and everyone would make the same face . That “oh shit that’s wild / good luck “, face . Easily the most difficult project I’ve ever had to work on. It’s been one hell of a roller coaster to say the least but man it feels good to be posting this . After 5 months of rent , 3 broken machines , 400+ tested products , 23 parking tickets , 6 new hires , and countless hours of problem solving we’re finally open to the public . The online store will open March 22nd where you can book an appointment or purchase goods . Until then , the back is open for walk ins . Thank you to everyone who supports my wild ideas and energy . See you soon ✌🏽
Grand opening exclusive . Hecho en Guatemala 🙏🏽 @side pro.ject
Cone 23/50 for Los Angeles . Peep the story for location . You find it you keep it ✌🏽
Painted an Air Force 1 in 2017 . Full steam ahead 🚀
When I got asked to display my work at the Tokyo Art Fair , I knew I wasn’t prepared but of course , said yes . I destroyed about 12 canvases and a few objects I attempted to build with acrylic and metal ( RIP ). Countless hours and energy spent until I created “Portal”. A 3-sided 6 foot sculpture built from hard maple and painted with acrylic . How could I create an object that executes the same effect of converting a three dimensional space to what appears two dimensional built from scratch ? This and 7 other custom pieces will assemble my latest installment titled “Seize to Exist”. See you soon Tokyo ✌🏽
