Slawn said work smarter AND harder. After sending young people on a mission to get his work into London’s most prestigious galleries, as well as plastering his art on The Windmill in Soho (catch up here), London-based creative Slawn was back with another unconventional drop.
Slawn has been on the scene for a few years now, with skaters, musicians and creatives quickly hopping on to his graffiti art. His accolades and occupations are many – skater, artist, model, brand owner and founder – we could go on. With early fans of his including Virgil Abloh, Burna Boy and Skepta, the creative has been doing big things, but most recently he’s set out to conquer London (and the world) with his art.
Most recently, Slawn hosted a meet-up-stroke-pop-up in East, outside the huge mural he painted in collaboration with UGG. Of the project, he said “thought I wouldn’t go bigger than the bus but here we are, a building…everytime I get smaller next to the work I do”.
Drawing a crowd of the rapidly growing Slawn Club community on Sunday, the multidisciplinary creative set to work spray painting directly on to people’s fits, as well as selling a selection of tees, long sleeves, beanies and hoodies.
The prep started long before the link up though – two days before dropping where the event would be happening, Slawn announced that Corteiz’s Clint would be modelling the campaign, no doubt bringing in larger crowds on the day. As hundreds gathered in front of Slawn’s mural on Chance Street, only up for the weekend, Sunday’s gathering didn’t disappoint.
