Since bursting onto the scene with his first publication 15 years ago – 1998’s “Tooya-Taiwan Graffiti” – street artist REACH has become not just a pioneer for the evolution of Taiwanese graffiti, but for the art form in general. Having exhibited across the globe, the artist is widely known for a variety of both simple and infinitely complex works – not to mention his collaborative endeavors alongside YONE. Thus, the latest installment of Essentials sees us linking up with REACH to see what the man needs to continue pushing the boundaries of artistic culture both at home and abroad. The resulting collection includes everything from his paint-stained cap and shoes, trusted sidekick 55, and well-worn FREITAG carry-all to his iPhone, KOOL cigarettes and iCash for countless 7-Eleven runs. Enjoy a closer look at REACH’s must-haves and be sure to check out his latest project, free trilingual magazine RADIKAL.
