Red Bull Curates Protégés: Toshikazu Nozaka @ Nubian

After covering Swedish artist Karolina Wojcik in Malmo, Sweden, Red Bull Curates Protégés hops over to Japan to visit Toshikazu Nozaka as he prepares his custom cooler for Nubian in Harajuku. Wanting to match perfectly the shops’s eclectic mix of East and West, Nozaka combined silver leaf and acrylics to create a standout piece steeped in the artist’s rich traditional Japanese style.

Upon receiving the finished work, Nubian’s manager Hidenori Kataoka also shared a bit about the space and the inspirations that went into the final design.

To see more of Nozaka’s work, check out his Pen & Paper feature here. Stay tuned for our next video when we visit Los Angeles native MAR and his Canvas Cooler.
