While nearly everyone is familiar with Pokemon, not a lot of people may know Daniel Arsham. If you’re not familiar, Daniel Arsham is a contemporary artist that “straddles the line between art, architecture, and performance.” Arsham’s work is varied, though a lot of his pieces are made with the concept of “fictional archeology” in mind.
Basically, a lot of his popular work include contemporary objects that are re-imagined and made with materials such as sand or volcanic ash. The aim is to present these objects as if they were unearthed in the future after being buried for centuries.
Arsham is not only popular for his art pieces, but also for his fashion collaborations. Arsham has collaborated with the likes of Adidas, Dior, and many other fashion brands.
