The Singaporean quartet of Alvin Tan, Melvin Chee, Jackson Tan and William Chan formed the :phunk stuido in 1994. Together they would go on and represent the Champions of Singapore’s Graphic Scene. Their theme of universality is a direct representation of all they stand for. Their diverse backgrounds create a mirage of different themes and ideas. They were recently invited by the Museum of Contemporary Art in Taipei to showcase their works. These works for 2007 include silk screened canvas, video art, and sculptures.

Here’s a look at an upcoming preview of a P-rod 2 colorway worn by Nike sponsored rider Danny Supa at a recent competition.
