Dumbo Arts Festival 9/26-28 September 30 2014, 0 Comments
In conjunction with a contemporary Japanese artists collective, Art Beasties's 1st anniversary open studio during Dumbo Arts Festival, Brújula New York exhibited our minimalistic wallet collection "One Piece Minimalist." Also exhibited at the studio were Understatement, a New York based high quality handcrafted eyewear brand, Attic Projekt, a Brooklyn based creative unit lead by a Japanese-American contemporary artist Mattsuo, and Buaisou, who farms their own indigo in Japan using Japanese traditional techniques and sells natural indigo dyed products. The open studio was a great success drawing hundreds of visitors during the 3 day festival in Dumbo Brooklyn. Many visitors praised us as one of the well-presented galleries in this year's festival. The success of the open studio was really a result of joint efforts by all participating artists, and we really enjoyed working with every one of the artists. And a very special thanks goes out to Art Beasties members, So-san from Galassia New York, and Sho (Understatement) who invited us to be a part of this wonderful event.
