81 BASTARDS

An artist collective of 10, 81 BASTARDS is comprised of six painters, a tattoo artist, photographer, videographer and DJ.
Born in the same year (‘81) and early intense involvement in Tokyo's underground art scene, original members bonded over values, they felt were generational. Perhaps by some cosmic plan more “81 bastards “ with these same values joined the collective, with active members across Japan, Australia and the US.

’81年生まれのアーティストを中心に結成されたアーティストコレクティブ。
東京のペインターコミュニティから発生し、各々が個性的なアーティストとして世界的に活躍しながらも同世代の価値観で共鳴し合うこの集団はTOKYO発次世代グラフィックイメージの旗手であり、様々なファッションブランドてのコラボレーション商品発売、企業タイアップの壁画制作やライブペイントショウなどの活動も精力的に行っている。

A rebellious nature, lust for change and constantly seeking new inspiration is perfectly summed up by the 81 BASTARDS ethos;

“We are sick of doing the same shit, so we are breaking the rules. Stick to your guns!!”

The collective and individual members have worked with brands the likes of BMW, Carhatt and Levi’s® to name a few. 81 BASTARDS are also heavily involved in mural and live painting events, often working internationally, with members having permanent murals in America and Australia.

様々なカルチャーの渦中で新しいアートのあり方を実践的に模索していく彼らが考える「アートと暮らし」のあり方はそのまま、東京の未来とも言えるだろう。
