  • Floor van het Nederend x Converse x Patta

    19.08.2014 by

    Converse presents the launch of a collaboration in Amsterdam, Rotterdam and Antwerp with its retail partners Patta, Woei and Avenue respectively – and three local artists (Floor van het Nederend (Amsterdam), Iwan Smit (Rotterdam) and Enpleinpublic (Antwerp)) to celebrate the launch of the re-mastered CONS Weapon. Each artist used his individual skill to create an exclusive object that represents his weapon of creativity.

    We highlight the artist we worked with: Illustrator Floor van het Nederend, who created his first time ever comic book called ‘The Adventures of Henry. Searchin’ For His Own’. The entire comic book was first drafted with a dip pen; the tool he creates all of his art with, as he believes it gives his illustrations a unique type of rawness.

    Born in Haarlem, 1987. Currently living in Amsterdam. As a child Floor was already a big comic head. He was (and still is) a big fan of Hergé and Franquin. Floor started to draw as much as possible at primary school and secondary school but never felt the urge to go to art school.
    After achieving a bachelor’s degree in Communication Science at the University of Amsterdam, Floor started making illustrations again. His style is a mix of underground comics and punk flyers. Raw, dark and mostly made with black ink. Themes are aggressive but never too serious. Big inspirations for his style are Robert Crumb, Raymond Pettibon and Charles Burns.

    Floor (Dutch): “Ik ben opgegroeid met strips. Toen ik klein was las ik veel Belgische strips, zoals Kuifje, Guust Flater en Robbedoes en Kwabbernoot. Nu vooral werk van mensen als Robert Crumb en Charles Burnes. Die underground comics zijn best wel volwassen, kritisch, pervers en rauw, dat spreekt me heel erg aan. Het verhaal voor de comic heb ik samen bedacht met Vincent van de Waal. We wilde het simpel houden, omdat we weinig tijd hadden. Het begint met een jongetje van een jaar of 12, die thuis via tv in aanraking komt met rocksterren enzo. Hij wil dat ook, en komt uiteindelijk in een droom in vier situaties terecht, waaronder een hiphopwereld en een backstage bij een punkconcert. Zo gaat hij door vier van die fases heen en uiteindelijk vindt hij wat hij zelf graag wilt maken, wat hij zelf leuk vindt.”
    “Ik heb de kroontjespen gekozen als mijn Weapon. Niet heel zweverig, en je kunt er mee prikken, dus het is ook nog eens echt een wapen. Toen ik eerst begon met tekenen gebruikte ik een fineliner, tot ik van mijn vriendin een kroontjespen en Oost-Indische inkt kreeg. Sindsdien gebruik ik dat altijd. Er gaat altijd onbedoeld wel iets fout, dat veeg ik dan een beetje uit en dat is een beetje een stijlding van me geworden. De comic is ontstaan als een idee voor Patta. Wix had me gevraagd om een t-shirt voor ze te ontwerpen, maar Gee wilde liever iets specialers doen. Omdat Patta toch een beetje underground vibe uitstraalt en ik fan ben van underground comics dacht ik dat dat goed bij elkaar zou passen. Zij vonden het vet, en uiteindelijk is het bij dit Converse project terecht gekomen.”

    Join us at the launch event August 21 with food, booze and live music. The comic books are available in limited numbers and space is limited as well, so be on time!

    The new Converse CONS Weapon sneaker is a modern interpretation of the classic silhouette, enhanced with new and improved design details that deliver a bold and edgy look. The Converse CONS Weapon is the latest addition to the Converse CONS Weapon portfolio, including the CONS Weapon Skate, Reflective Mesh, Patchwork and Ray Pack that all launched throughout the summer.

    The new Converse CONS Weapon, inspired by the original Weapon design, is refined and re-mastered with a lighter last and a slimmer midsole for both style and functionality. New features include an internal Y-Bar with memory foam for enhanced cushion and fit, as well as a plush marbled EVA sockliner. Added perforations also provide increased breathability throughout the sneaker.

    On the exterior of the new Converse CONS Weapon, the iconic Star Chevron logo and external Y-bar stay true to the design DNA of the original Weapon, but have been modernized. The Star Chevron logo on the top and bottom of the upper were updated, as well as the external Y-bar to balance the improved upper construction.

    The new Converse CONS Weapon sneaker is available in a selection of classic varsity colors including black/white, white/green and red/blue. The collection is available for purchase Thursday August 21 at Patta.

  • Don’t Worry, Everything is Going to be Amazing

    06.08.2014 by

    Saša Ostoja is a 31 year old illustrator from Amsterdam, making a living out of what he loves to do the most. His work is characterised by an abundance of playfulness, colours and different shapes, all surrounded with a interesting dark edge. Saša describes his drawings as movie stills from his own movie, and he’s the only one who knows where it began and how it will end. His work is a reflection on how he sees our modern society. Saša graduated as a fine arts painter from the Utrecht School of the Arts.

    Saša is taking up residence in Gallery 33 with his entourage of beasts, wild animals, and furry miscreants to create a jungle menagerie in the Westergas ‘culture park.’

    The art world can be a bewildering jungle or it can be a stroll in the park. We like to have our daily life turned upside down, the park turned into a jungle, and the jungle become a place of wonder, humour, inspiration and chaotic beauty. Saša Ostoja is just the artist needed for this task.

    Embracing the nomen of ‘Naïve Art’ for his idiosyncratically stylized animals, Saša’s goal is to pull the rug from under our mechanized and ritualized lives and hold up a mirror decorated in flourishing and child-like fantasy; a mirror meant not only to reflect, but to reimagine. Attacking the page with his fountain pen and a pot of ink, he creates worlds in his illustrations that simultaneously evoke and challenge societal forms.

    Saša will move in with works from his personal collection, both prints and original pieces, as well as some sculptures to populate and (though you wouldn’t know it at first glance) derange, disturb and delight you.

    It is Saša’s first solo show and the gallery’s first time exhibiting a local artist by themselves.

    “Don’t Worry, Everything is Going to be Amazing” runs from August 8th, 2014 till August 31th, 2014 at Gallery 33, Pazzanistraat 33, 1014 DB, Westergasfabriek, Amsterdam, The Netherlands.

    Despite the fact that the Patta brand is primarily aimed at men, we see more and more ladies incorporating Patta pieces with their effeminate attire. This prompted our dear creative friends Ace Dia and Violette Esmeralda to conceptualize and art direct the previous Patta #SSS ladies editorial. Following up on the warm reception, this time around the editorial highlights the latest Patta Summer collection 2014 and displays it from a more feminine fashion perspective on the brand’s classic streetwear-type of feel, in a way women wear it. These items are available at Patta in store, online and at official Patta stockists. Check it out in full below.
