GGG (Graffiti Gone Global) is proud to present the designs of Marc Fornes, Volkan Alkanoglu, Billi Kid and other prominent street and graffiti artists, architects and designers who have challenged, and continue to challenge, the status quo in urban contemporary art and design. The inventiveness that permeates their respective processes of design – from their original visions to the unique methodologies they employ in the fabrication of their work – reflects the philosophy upon which GGG was founded. From a monumental installation made of more than 12,000 unique parts to modern furniture to pieces of the NBA All Star Game basketball court re-imagined, the designs at this year’s show are testament to the progressive nature of the field of urban contemporary art and design.
With the artists gathered alongside their fellow street artisans — dancers, musicians, food vendors and other urbanites — GGG creates a unified platform that celebrates the ethos of urban culture. It seems only fitting that SUSHISAMBA, which was born of the energy and spirit of Japanese, Brazilian and Peruvian cuisine, music and design, would host such an exciting and cohesive event.
