Interview by Megan Wilson (@shegotgame)
The artist collaboration is a mainstay in fashion, both streetwear and high end. For éS’ latest capsule collection, they’ve teamed up with Mark Ward, a London-based graphic artist and illustrator. Ward is known for creating bright pieces driven by 1980s and 90s Americana, but with his own personal twist. As part of the partnership, Ward designed a pair of La Brea sneakers, four t-shirts, jackets and a cap. He’s also putting the finishing touches on his new exhibit entitled “As Seen on TV” running to August 18, 2011 at Kemistry Gallery at 43 Charlote Road in London.
We spoke to Ward as he was finishing pieces for "As Seen on TV", getting his views on skate culture and his partnership with éS.
