"The Once Upon A Time No More series illustrates my modern take on fairy tales where the princesses are still beautiful, feminine and innocent, yet they'd no longer take bullying from the villains or wait helplessly for their princes to come to rescue. In "Once Upon A Time No More II", Cinderella's done waiting for the prince and wearing the glass slippers... instead she's worked hard (as in the story) and gotten herself a pair of AJ's. My princesses are strong and independent, and they work hard to achieve what they want... but still sweet and feminine." - Mimi Yoon
This October 1xRUN in collaboration with jeffstaple took over New York City’s Reed Space for an exhibition of exclusive fine art editions by the Detroit based publisher and hand-painted multiples featuring new work from Ricky Powell, Anthony Lister, Kevin Lyons, Naturel, Mimi Yoon and Prefab77.
For this unique exhibition, Staple has hand-picked select artists from the 1xRUN family to remix his iconic Reed Space chair, with each artist applying their unique iconography to the classic logo. In addition to the logo remix, each artist will be releasing a limited edition print.
After building a global streetwear brand, jeffstaple continues to be instrumental in bridging the fashion world with the contemporary art movement. The collection of artists Staple has curated and assembled for this exhibition hail from every corner of the diverse new contemporary movement blending, design, illustration, photography, graffiti and public art. Each of these hand selected artists have been instrumental in their own right in sculpting the visual landscape of the urban environment.
With two equally devoted but unique fan bases, Staple and 1xRUN have found that the fans who support these designers, tastemakers, trendsetters and artists have just 1 degree of separation in terms of style and culture. This event will bring these groups together to descend upon Reed Space to celebrate the confluence of art, culture and style.
For artist Mimi Yoon, there is no concrete definition for art. To her it is simply that "art is". Mimi's artwork vibrates with tangible and sensual beauty and honesty. It subtly allure then climaxes to demand attention and is immediately unforgettable.
At times, Mimi works intuitively without speculating what the piece will be about using her mood as her medium inviting the audience to drift off on emotional journeys. But her more recent works scream subtle social statements embracing both femininity and strength of women.
