After 12 years in the business, FriendsWithYou, a collaborative art duo whose mission is to spread the message of “Magic, Luck, and Friendship,” release a monograph with the help of Rizzoli. Their work is unmistakable — colorful creatures and objects take form on canvas, appear as toys and blow-up objects, and at times, engulf full rooms. FreindsWithYou blend religious motifs with the theme of “play,” encouraging viewers to interact and have fun. If the group is off your radar, we suggest a proper investigation into their work.
Their book will launch in two locations — in LA’s MOCA on May 31 and New York’s PK Shop on June 5 — with special book signings and installations. A special “little cloud lamp” will also be available for sale exclusively at PK.
