We partnered with PMK BNC to create a photo graffiti backdrop for an exclusive event hosted by the talented Issa Rae as part of the “A Sip” series.  The main challenge was coming up with a design and fabrication solution 48 hours prior to the event as we were contacted about this event last minute.  Luckily, we are known for our quick turnarounds and being able to execute under pressure!

“Hosted by Issa Rae, “A Sip” is an unscripted, intimate fireside chat over drinks with creatives we are inspired by. This time, I’m in East Harlem to talk to the exuberant comedian, actress and rising producer, Tiffany Haddish!”

The creative direction for this piece was to feature some iconic elements of Harlem since the event was held at Rain Nightclub. After the event, the canvas was moved to an outdoor patio to serve as the backdrop of a meet & greet with Issa Rae herself where fans posed with her in front of the artwork for photos.
