EASTPAK BACK TO FUTURE

2


Eastpak was founded in 1952 upon receiving its first military contract for high-quality duffels, backpacks and safety equipment for the US Army. Twenty-five years later when the ‘cool’ students stopped carrying briefcases, the Seattle based company spotted an opportunity, shifting attention and launching its first range of backpacks for the consumer market in 1977. With the focus firmly on cornering the University Bookstore market, Eastpak was the first brand to introduce bright colours to backpacks as well as extravagant prints, cementing its place as brand of choice down the East Coast of America, acquiring its ‘cool’ urban explorer image organically and retaining it to the present day.

The Eastpak Authentic Returnity collection is a celebration of the brand’s history - a throwback to the vintage look and feel of the original Eastpak range. Expect authenticity, uncompromising quality and Eastpak’s famous lifetime warranty.

"ABOVE" BLOOD DIAMOND MURAL

The infamous US Graffiti artist "ABOVE" pulled off a pretty impressive con in Johannesburg...in his own version of a classic diamond heist!

BLOOD DIAMOND ABOVE

According to Above: "Africa has had a devastating history of blood diamond wars. Blood diamond refers to a diamond mined in a war zone and then sold to finance an invading army's war efforts, usually in Africa where more than two-thirds of the worlds diamonds are extracted. This site specific social / political word play was painted on the exterior wall of Johannesburg's largest diamond trader Jewel City.

Jewel City is a six-block mega-precinct that serves as a base for some 300 diamond traders as well as South Africa’s Diamond Board and State Traders Association.
Jewel City is the largest diamond exporter in the southern hemisphere with over R7-Billion worth of Diamonds being exported every year. I was able to get away with this diamond wall heist because I told the owners I would paint in big letters "Diamonds are a woman's best friend" on the exterior of their building. The owners loved the idea and all quickly agreed.

The next day I had started painting but what the owners didn't know is that I lied to them and was hijacking their wall. Like any premeditated robbery, situations are not what they seem and shit can flip from best friends to worst enemies in a few moments.

I assume the owners were too busy trading diamonds inside the mega centre they never took the time to come out and see I was painting a controversial word play about the diamond trade and how it's fueled so much bloodshed in wars making it one of man's worst enemies."

ASHA ZERO SKATEBOARD DECKS

More about ASHA:

"Asha Zero is a pseudonym, intended to draw attention to identity as a shifting, unstable concept, while deflecting attention from the so-called person behind the name. In keeping with this notion, Zero's work deals with issues of fragmented identity in contemporary society, distressed and atomized by information overload virtual and authentic, false and true.

Asha Zero is only one guise amongst many individuality-destroying pseudonyms. The name is not a signifier in a floating world of possible meaning. It is a flickering signal in a virtual domain of electronic meaninglessness.' (De Lange n.d:1)"
