COMPOUND EDITION “CHARLIE GRIN” RELEASE PARTY
When I meet taste makers who share the same interest as myself I like to share their talent! I am excited to introduce Alec Tavares. Alec is a freelance marketer and writer who currently works with The Compound. The Compound is a creative agency that helps creative individuals and companies execute their projects. Take a look at what Alec and The Compound allowed me to share with the Luxshop4u community!
Bringing together the art and hip-hop world in co-creative fashion, The Compound has once again, pushed the culture forward!
6/1/2017 Concepts provided the setting for a celebration for the release of Compound x Ron English x Made by Monsters Final Edition Charlie Grin. The Hip Hop culture came out to be a part of history.
The toy release was hosted by Lenny S. from Roc Nation and YS warmed up the crowd for DJ Enuff who provided the soundtrack for the evening.
The final edition of Charlie Grin has opened new doors and welcomed new fans, bringing out avid toy collectors and hip hop fans. This final Charlie Grin is a more than just a collector’s toy; it is a piece of history for the culture, and beginning of a new trend for Hip Hop.
With such high demand for this historical piece bridging modern art and Hip Hop, you cannot help but wonder what’s next-but be certain; there will be a next! Stay tuned, The Compound is just getting started!
I would like to thank The Compound blog for sharing this fun event with us! Thank you Alec Tavares for covering this story and thank you to photographers Deuce Pearsall @go2deuce, Oluwaseye Olusa, Antwon Walker and Jimmy Giambrone.
That Charlie Grin toy is sick! Ron English is a pretty cool artist. I wish I could get my hand on one of those joints but I heard they were limited to 300 pieces.
