Highlights From The PEL NYC Event At Rime Brooklyn

PEL NYC, previewed his Luxurious Villain at rime Brooklyn before taking it on tour. The artist’s work is thought provoking, and takes current events and pop culture and expresses them through his distinct perspective. 

PEL NYC Will Preview Their Luxurious Villain

Griot PEl, PEL NYC, provokes thought, feeling and conversation using news and pop culture as subject matter. His military and menswear design background sharpened his skills and broadened his artistic horizon with attention to detail. PEL’s trips around the world have helped to develop a perspective that’s all his own. His immersion into different cultures has helped him to incorporate different textures of conversation into a seamless thread. He has curated juxtaposed views with daily caricatures of current events via social media , and his monthly contribution in Penthouse, a full-page political feature called “Sketchy Truths”.  Whether he’s using a pen, marker or paint he has mastered a way to have in depth conversations with the viewer. The dialogue is often done whimsically while addressing the larger subject matter. His subtle pokes at pop culture and commercial compliance are his hallmark. PEL allows the viewer to take a glance at his offbeat imagination through his art. The preview at rime’s Brooklyn location will be of PEL’s Luxurious Villain exhibition before it goes on it global gallery tour. It will be happening for 48 hours on Saturday 9/29 and Sunday 9/30, where the artist will be in attendance, limited edition merch will be available for sale and the chance to win a customized Lucky figure. RSVP at contact@rimenyc.com. The exhibition will be between 1-8 on Saturday and 2-5 on Sunday.Screen Shot 2018-09-24 at 12.27.20 PM

Incorp[HER]ated Event.

On November 18th, 2017, “Incorp[HER]ated,” founded by Khiana Lowe and Brittany Edwards, launched a very noble and empowering event called “Straight to Feet” in New York City.  The goal of “Straight to Feet” was to make the point that the  “underwhelming number of women highlighted in sneaker culture does not accurately reflect the number of women present in the game”. The event’s goal was to inspire and empower the next generation of young women and men, and to highlight the importance of inclusion to push them to confidently pursue their passions. Sneakers were the vessel used to execute the mission of working as a team to create a cohesive message on a product, which in theory could be sold to a mass market of young women and men. The students were divided into four teams and were all assigned a mentor to work with their team help them execute their ideas on the designated sneaker for the project, a classic Reebok Club C. Once ready, all the teams presented their design to an audience of event attendees (talk about pressure). All four teams did a great job of presenting their designs BUT, their could only be one winner. A tough task indeed for the judges – a group made up of the workshop mentors, Sean of OSD, and Susan Boyle of Rime NYC. The winning design team received a prize AND, their actual sneaker is currently on display at the ONLY woman owned sneaker Boutique in New York City, Rime NYC (at the Brooklyn location). After the design presentation, the audience (which included all the young ladies who participated in the design challenge as well as a wider audience of general attendees) were able to experience a panel which featured some very inspiring women who are professionals in the footwear industry in various capacities. This panel of esteemed women included: Erin Mintun (formerly of ColeHaan and Nike), Joy Yoon (Adidas), Jazerai Allen-Lord (Crush and Lovely), Alisa Nevita (For The Kick of It), and Darcy Krinsky (Reebok); and covered topics ranging from technology in the industry to sentiments around Hypebeast culture. With materials provided by Reebok, and the Brooklyn Shoe Space, and the wonderful facilities donated by Galvanize NYC. There was amazing execution of this first event by Incorp[HER]ated. They executed their mission and handled it all with tremendous humility and class. I look foward to their next event. Congrats to Brittany and Khiana of Incorp[HER]ated. 20171118_150321 20171118_154952 Screen Shot 2018-01-15 at 2.15.39 PM Screen Shot 2018-01-15 at 2.16.04 PM
