His distinct style has led to collaborations with Microsoft and Canada Goose. eepmon utilizes his skills and knowledge of fine arts, illustration, computer programming and photography to create art pieces that are conceptual and expressive while bridging together eastern and western cultures. Although his influences may not strikingly stand out in his work, the pieces are evocative and striking. His exhibits have used Google’s weather service data to create art. At times his exhibits even became interactive using the weather data and audience’s uploaded photos, blending them to make abstract works.

Taking the digital age’s immediacy into consideration, Eepmon’s work is easily printed onto a multitude of media or uploaded.

Alexander Wang Spring/Summer 2018

Alexander Wang is a staple for street-wear aficionados. For the spring/summer 2018 show the designer took his street-wear aesthetic to another level by showcasing the collection on a dead-end street in Bushwhack, Brooklyn with a soundtrack of trap music, that was blasted from trucks. The inspiration was clearly party, partying and more parties. The effortless party vibe shone through the pieces, lacy slip tops and cashmere sweaters were spilled together as if grabbing whatever at the end of the day and heading directly to a party. The styling was especially cool, showing modern ways of wearing closet staples, like tailored jackets wrapped around waists, and denim shorts were worn over leather pants. Also shown during the spring/summer 2018 collection were adidas collaboration pieces, this time around the pieces came in hybrid leather and denim trousers with the signature triple stripe and the iconic trefoil logo reimagined upside down and a stand out zip-up jacket with extra sleeves that cinched and wrapped around the waist. The collection has something for every downtown party girl.
