In 2009, while we were serving as an adjunct faculty member and Guest Artist at Miami Dade College, we presented an array of artistic projects including a dance we choreographed with several students whom we have lost contact with and do not have their names to credit and yet our appreciation for their work continues to grow. We utilized music from Bryonn Bain, Harvard Professor of Hip-Hop and performing artist, as well as Dr. John Sims, Professor of Mathematics and leading proponent of The Math Art Project, which led to the first presentation of SQUIRCULAR (a poemedy with 360 lines and each line having 7 syllables) at the Bowery Poetry Cafe in New York City.+ More details

Stussy takes it back to the brand's roots in a new book featuring never before seen photographs from one of surfing and skateboarding’s most influential photographers Craig Fineman. Although Fineman is no longer with us, thanks to boyhood friend Duncan Campbell and International Stussy Tribe member Jules Gayton, Stussy is privileged to present this intimate look at a late 1970's pool skating session captured in black and white as only Craig could do. Known for his artistic approach to photographing the burgeoning late '70s surfing and skateboarding scene, Fineman took into consideration the overall aesthetics of a photograph. Unique angles and composition, intertwined with an almost architectural feel were hallmarks of Craig’s work. To further enhance said elements of his photography, we chose to present each photo in a distinct way offering a feel of the gravity of the situation, while highlighting the gracefully flowing movements taking place. Although this session can realistically be measured as a small sliver in the grand scope of time for skateboarding -- and even surfing given the influence found in modern surfing that can be attributed to what went on in those pools - thanks to Campbell’s archive of Fineman’s work, this session will be forever immortalized in this special edition book. http://www.stussy.com/features/pools-by-craig-fineman+ More details
Keiichi Tanaami was born in 1936 as the eldest son of a textile wholesaler in Tokyo. He was 9 years old when Tokyo was bombed during the Great Tokyo Air Raid of World War II in 1945. Images seared into the back of his mind at this time would become major motifs in his art works: roaring American bombers, searchlights scanning the skies, firebombs dropped from planes, the city a sea of fire, fleeing masses, and his father’s deformed goldfish swimming in its tank, flashes from the bombs reflecting in the water. Tanaami took to drawing from a young age, and as a junior high school student he often spent time at the studio of leading postwar cartoonist Kazushi Hara with the intention of becoming a cartoonist himself. After Hara’s sudden death, however, he turned to the pioneering field within manga of graphic novels, and went on to study to become a professional artist at Musashino Art University. Word of his talent spread quickly during his time there and in 1958, as a second year student, he was awarded the Special Selection at an exhibition held by the authoritative illustration and design group of the time. After graduating he took a job with an advertising agency, but quit before one year was up due to the numerous private commissions he was receiving. During the ‘60s he busied himself as a successful illustrator and graphic designer while also actively participating in the Neo-Dada organization, one of the defining art movements of postwar Japan. In the latter half of the ‘60s he immersed himself in making video art, the newest medium in the art scene at the time. In 1999, a retrospective of Tanaami’s works from the ‘60s was held at Gallery 360º in Tokyo. The exhibit was praised highly by Yamataka EYE (Boredoms) and KAWS, cultural leaders of the new generation born after the “60s, and as a result, Tanaami’s works once again became popular amongst youth culture. Since 2005, Tanaami has been presenting new works that fall in the realm of fine art. In these works, he continues to manifest images from his personal memories and from his dream world -- personified goldfish, deformed characters, rays of light, helical pine trees, fantastical architecture, young girls -- through the various mediums of painting, sculpture, film and furniture. Tanaami has worked as a professor at Kyoto University of Art and Design since 1991, where he has helped bring up young new artists such as Tabaimo. Recent exhibits include “Day Tripper” at Art & Public in Geneva (2007), "SPIRAL" at Galerie Gebt. Lehmann in Berlin (2008), "Kochuten" at NANZUKA UNDERGROUND (2009), "Still in Dream" at Frieze Art Fair (2010) and "No More War" at Art 42 Basel (2011).

For our 2012 Holiday Collection, we linked with designer and musician Trevor Jackson to create a series of music themed tees that hark back to the time when the classics were spun on 12" vinyl records. Playing with phrases and references pulled from classic songs from his past, Trevor's designs are minimal, bold, and on point. He is responsible for designing over 300 album covers and remixing artists such as Massive Attack, UNKLE, and U2. We caught up with Trevor at his London studio to discuss his beginnings and the balancing act of having two successful careers. The Stussy x Trevor Jackson Artist Series is available now at Stussy Chapter Stores worldwide and Stussy.com. Please visit www.Stussy.com for more details.
