Mattia Turco resident artist 3x3x3

If you’ve ever had the chance to visit the bastard store and climb up upstairs, where we run our offices, you’ve probably met Mattia Turco and checked out his studio with his latest works.

With the 3x3x3 project by Vans – a skate deck series of 3, designed by 3 skaters in collaboration with their 3 supporting skateshops – we’ve worked on a skate deck and on a special t-shirt to represent the synthesis of the expressive research of Mattia today. Read the rest of this entry »

Presidents’ Hair Cut

Presidents' Hair Cut by Paolo Proserpio [photo: Andrea Rossetti]

According to Paolo Proserpio “American Presidents have a beautiful haircut”, enough to win the main wall of the bastard bowl with the Wall Paint Contest 2015.

Starting May 7, a two months delirium made of acrylics, wood, cockroaches, pigeons, Big Babols, spray cans, nails and screws, reveals details and pieces of the pop culture. Jackie, the most stylish wife of all (John Fitzgerald Kennedy R.I.P. 1963) is effigy of the brand of the Presidents’ hair lacquer: Hair Cut.

A pattern on the label mix sacred and profane: Lee Harvey Oswald (killer of Kennedy) with Jack Ruby (killer of the killer of the 35th president), whose eponymous band is also the soundtrack of these two months of work.

The 60 Jaquelines Lee Bouvier watch with their third eye on the 5 presidents of the 5 American notes: 1, 5, 10, 20 and 100 sprouting from the bowl (such as the Rocky Mountains) in size 8.10 x 1.90 meters with an optical pattern.

by jep 12 June 2018

Today the jury made their final decision on WPC entries, and we have the winner…

bastard Wall Paint Contest winner 2015 - Paolo Proserpio

Paolo Proserpio, with his work named Presidents’ Hair Cut Rocks that you see in the picture above. Paolo (Proserpio as we call him here) isn’t a new name for us, as he frequently collaborates with bastard on different levels and on different graphical projects. We always have a subject in common: the print. He also teaches Printing Techniques and Brand Identity at the IED school in Milano.

Proserpio will use collage, acrylics and even some spray paint (hair lacquer?!) for his work on the main wall, in the coming days. If you want to know more about this dude follow him on instagram @paoloproserpio Read the rest of this entry »
