tonight at Cafe Istanbul we will be celebrating the legendary film, AKIRA. this visually scoring work of ART has inspired the aesthetics and culture behind this brand. a lot of influence came from viewing this movie while growing up. we hope that you enjoy it in the same light. maybe you can celebrate the various elements of the film and see why it’s such a nu cvlt classic.
upon entry for the night, you will have the option to donate $5 or $10+ for entry. if you choose $10 or more you will receive a limited edition signed and numbered illustration by the founder himself. this is the first thing he’s drawn and made public all summer.
greetings and hello friends, family, and readers. much has been taking place within the art + clothing project over the summer. it’s been a very fruitful adventure releasing the new summer collection-as well as hosting art shows and pop-ups throughout the city of New Orleans. if you are reading this and attended one, wow seriously thanks- we really appreciated your involvement 100%. our next production will be an AKIRA movie night.
Akira has been a movie that’s inspired the core art and aesthetic of our project. it’s more than just a movie night for us. it’s a chance to celebrate the things that inspired us creatively growing up. we want our family of artists and lovers of the craft to gather in a very intimate setting for this legendary film. sharing drinks, snacks and forgetting the outside realm for just a moment. we invite you to become inspired as we were when viewing this movie. the art, animation, and music will consume you entirely bringing you directly to Neo-Tokyo.
as we grow older we find it vital to be reminded of the very things that shaped our creativity. we find so much value in this. thank you all for helping make this a success before it even takes place.
we are coming out of pocket to provide sound and kind of pull the production together- when you come Friday please take a moment to look at our artwork set up and snag a print or a new tee shirt. also not only just us- there will be a few other sponsored brands/visual artists helping make this event a success, so if you are able- pick up art/merchandise from them as well.
Friday, July 28th at Cafe Istanbul – 2372 Saint Claude Ave. – New Orleans, LA
our Golden Chips x Cvlt Aesthetics art pop-up was a successful gathering unlike anything we have ever done.
that phrase -you never know until you try- was our blood fueling the the gathering for the night. dreams and reality are not too far apart right now. if you have the idea, it’s up to you to make it happen.
last night we celebrated culture. we gathered and sang songs to the cosmos and the French Quarter streets. we painted and performed. we were infinite for a moment.
blessings to our hosts and family at Golden Chips who made sure we were fed.
this is the definition of culture. it’s insane to think our gifts all syncing in perfect harmony gave for such a pleasant night. our society of the arts is growing and it’s through these holy moments that we honor our gifts bestowed.
thank you – for all who came out to experience this very rare and raw event. thank you to the contributing artists who rebuilt that corner of Toulouse St. and made it what it was. many thanks to Golden Chips for opening their doors.
