COOL SHIT aka Hungry Castle is the Internet in real life. Their work has been exhibited in New York, Miami Beach, London and Paris. They actively work to make cool shit playful, public, polarizing and pop. And they will bring rays of sunshine to Playgrounds Blend.
Their art inspires the fashion but it’s the fashion that funds their art. Therefore to purchasing a Cool Shit Cap helps them to realise a Cool Shit Project.
Working collectively since 2011 the goal has always been to make big, playful things of cultural impact and use design thinking in a way that truly engages people. Influenced by Shepard Fairey’s prolific use of public space with the “Obey Giant” campaign, the artists combine unique 3-dimensional pieces with large-scale production a la Jeff Koons but with an added interactive ingredient to create a fully immersive experience between audience and art.
COOL SHIT will do an artist talk at Playgrounds Blend.
COOL SHIT sells concepts and a lot of Cool Shit to a cross section of clients and sponsors including Adidas, HP and several International Music Festivals.
Thanks to a collaboration with Graphic Matters we’re able to bring Hungry Castle to the stage of Playgrounds Blend.
