Mambo / Modern Cannibalism
Crooks & Castles is proud to announce a new collaboration with French Artist Mambo, fueled by Monster Energy and BR4SS.
The collaboration will consist of a mural of Mambo’s unique artwork in Downtown Los Angeles, a limited edition article of clothing and exclusive giveaways at the 2013 Los Angeles Art Walk Series.
Having collaborated with internationally respected brands such as Prada, Samsung, The Standard Hotels, Oakley and many others, this will be Mambo’s first large scale project since moving to the United States last year from France.
“My main inspiration is us, humans, and our behaviours. I like to express our feelings and emotions through the bodies, faces and hands. This piece will be called “Modern Cannibalism” and is mainly about the rat race, and how people will eat and step over others to achieve their goals, but is beyond that. My message is not obvious and part of it is just for you to imagine. So please take a seat and enjoy.”
“This project is extremely special and groundbreaking. When you mix a talented artist like Mambo with one of streetwears elites like Crooks & Castles, you create something from the ground up that tells a story which is relevant to todays society. It’s truly amazing.”
- Chief Johnson, Marketing Director for Crooks & Castles
“Putting this project together was over a year in the making. We’re blessed to have a great team of partners that believe in our vision & look forward to creating culture at a time when our society is yearning for some- thing new”
- Travis Siflinger, Managing Director of BR4SS
