Expressive fashion house Sprayground, the most influential streetwear brand known for its thought-provoking and innovative designs, has teamed up with two of the most prolific artists, Ron English and EXIT ART to launch two exclusive collections at Art Basel 2022.
Ron English's highly coveted collection features 13 beautiful, eclectic, unique designs, with a high dose of energy through its vivid colors and patterns paired with Popaganda’s smiley face logo. These designs include an eccentric zebra-patterned elephant handbag, vibrant poodle pouchette, futuristic rabbit backpack, and Vincent Van Gogh-esque landscape backpack. This collection speaks to its audience in colorful inspirations with vibrant and bright pinks, teals, reds, yellows, and blues. The iconic smiley face can be seen on Sprayground’s well known bear bag, carry on, three additional backpacks, mini duffle, smiley sunflower tote, and hoodies in black, neon pink, and a vibrant blue. The Sprayground x Ron English collection will be showcased for the first time during a private event at The Museum of Graffiti, Wynwood, on December 1.
Sprayground’s collection with EXIT ART features his signature eye-catching snapshots of exit signs on Sprayground’s new handbag style, duffle bag, and backpack. EXIT fantasizes of freedom and dreams of new beginnings, creating these vivid scenes of signs that provide hints of a way out. Each bag has an explosion of snapshots EXIT captured in eclectic and vibrant colors paired with Spraygrounds iconic and collectible art-piece - the Shark Mouth design. EXIT features this collection of snapshots that were the only things left after a horrific flood destroyed many homes in Germany (including his). To him, EXIT means to live in the here and now, a reminder that it is always your conscious decision either to stay in the moment or leave. In a world that is increasingly alienating the individual with its speed, looking and actually seeing details is a form of grounding oneself. This collection will launch at the Rudolf Budja gallery on December 1, at an exclusive event sponsored by Rolls Royce.
Sprayground first captured worldwide attention when the ‘Hello My Name’ backpack debuted over 10 years ago. Sprayground founder, David BenDavid (DBD), had high hopes to create a brand that he felt represented his childhood and upbringing. Exposed to streetwear, art and a variety of cultures from a young age, DBD took all this inspiration and turned it into creativity that is now admired worldwide.
