RVCA Japan | Store Grand Opening Shibuya

Last week we celebrated the grand opening of our new RVCA Shibuya flagship store in Tokyo, Japan. Many friends, fans, and advocates were in attendance, including Christian Fletcher, Alex Knost, Zak Noyle, Danny Fuller, Ford Archbold and Mark Oblow. Oblow christened the new store front window with his classic cat illustration and Danny Fuller & Zak Noyle collaborated together on a "Balance of Opposites" photo exhibition that was featured in the RVCA art gallery, located above the new retail space. Additionally Tomorrow's Tulips (Alex Knost & Ford Archbold) performed a live show for a select audience. Special thanks to our RVCA Japan family for helping create this incredible space and thank you to everyone who joined us for the event.

He’s one of the funniest dudes I know. His mind works like no other. You’ve got to hang with him to see for yourself. And the dude can big flip anything! So rad to see how good he’s become. Dudes the best!"

The RVCA Corner Gallery was excited to welcome back REMIO to open, “I’m Not Discussing My Day” ­ his first solo body of works on display in Melbourne since his 2014 show “Subconscious Rumours”. To sum up his work, Art Primo SF describes REMIO as: "Known for his playful handstyles, throwups, and iconic “R” character, Remio is a founding member of the VTS graffiti crew and a regular contributor to the seminal THR and VLOK crews. Recently, Remio has transitioned from painting almost exclusively in the streets, to the staid gallery world, bringing his unique vision to the larger art community."
