Vannen Watches x Nathan Jurevicius HAVEN watch with a special treat from CHERRY VINYL!

hot off the press ... ...


Nathan Jurevicius for Vannen Watches

That’s Nathan Jurevicius (above) signing, numbering and drawing on 150 packages for his upcoming Vannen artist watch, Haven. I’ve seen a sneak peek of the watch, and it’s sure to find fans with those who follow the Twin Peaks mantra:

“The owls are not what they seem.”

For one lucky Jurevicius fan, Haven will also contain an original “golden ticket” illustration that entitles its finder to a one-off, bronze-toned resin Akis figure designed and signed by the artist and produced by my favorite fabbers, Cherry Vinyl (below). Vannen will release the watches on Friday, March 3oth, and you can grab one online one minute after midnight for $85 here. Further pictures to follow!

Nothing But Net!

Wow, people are really loving the dumpster dived art by XVALA.  If you didn't read about it before our buddies at JEREMYRIAD* have chronicled the story pretty darn well, so you kids should check that out.  Plus there is a link to some rad TMZ footage, bonus-sauce!!!

Thanks everyone for all the awesomeness!

Sooooo read all about it....

XVALA - "Slammed and Dunked"

We're stoked to share that we recently collaborated with the artist, XVALA, to help create a resin sculpture based on a deflated basketball that XVALA pulled from Kim Kardashian's garbage. The sculpture, Slammed and Dunked, was shown at the XVALA x Fear Google presents The Kim Kardashian Party art event curated by The Site Unscene!! Check them out...they work with some amazing artists!

The Slammed and Dunked sculpture was formed out of a ‘recycled resin’
created from excess Kim Kardashian garbage from the same bin!

XVALA said in a press release, "You can always learn something about someone by looking at their garbage, and Kim produces a lot of garbage."

To learn more about the art event & the artist XVALA check out these other blogs:
