Diesel is proud to present CULTivate, a new conceptual vision to nurture fresh talent and celebrate creativity, launching in Asia with a group show exhibiting at the Diesel Planet Store in Hong Kong. The global debut of CULTivate sees the concept shaped by the host city of Hong Kong, where the exciting local surroundings and intriguing juxtaposition of old/new and East/West provided creative inspiration. Creative Director Young Kim, also known by his artist name Suitman, was invited to guest-curate the Hong Kong CULTivate show, which features creative collaborators from around the world. Using the hawker booth as their canvas, the artists have created impressive new works re-interpreting an iconic element of Hong Kong’s CULTural heritage.
Artists featured include: Hitotzuki – Kami + Sasu (Tokyo), Lady Aiko (New York), Bomin Kim (Seoul), Black Panda – Jennifer Lew and Victor-John Villanueva (New York/Denver), Gwen Yip (Hong Kong), Anton Lopez (Hong Kong), The University of Hong Kong /Control Shift (Hong Kong), Lo Koon-Chiu (Hong Kong), and Suitman (New York/Tokyo/Hong Kong).
