His work has caught the eye of many looking towards artistic collaborations, including superstar electronic artist AVICII as well as The W Hotel, Madonna and Vitamin Water in a collaboration that saw live street art inspired renditions of a classic series of photographs Richard Corman took of Madonna in the 1980s. His solo exhibition at Mead Carney Gallery in London received high praise from Huffington Post, London Times, and completely sold out along with his Art Basel exhibition “Man Overboard” which took place on the 151-foot yacht MV Copasetic in South Beach. Having taken Art Basel Miami Beach by storm since 2012, his energy bursts forth in his first exhibition during Art Basel Hong Kong.

Boooooom in my Pants

Mister Jeff Hamada left a stack of booooooom stickers at Above Second, so I decided to make full use of their natural radness.

Check out all the little boooooooms in Hong Kong, it was like a terrorist attacked the city with tiny explosions of awesome.
