#CCINDEX: 88RISING #CCIndex is a compendium providing the need-to-knows of the movers and shakers of street culture, regionally and internationally. Formerly known as CXSHXNLY, the American mass media company has gained popularity as a musical platform and label primarily for their roster of Asian artists it manages such as Joji, Rich Brian (formerly known as Rich Chigga), Keith Ape, Higher Brothers and Niki. While the company gained popularity through the record label side of things, 88rising is really a ‘media/video content focused company at heart’ according to Miyashiro.   Founded in 2015 by Sean Miyashiro and Jaeson Ma, 88rising is described as a hybrid management, record label, video production and marketing company. To neo-Nazis, the number has come to stand for “Heil Hitler” but in contrast, the number eighty-eight in Chinese culture actually means “double happiness.” [...]

#CCINDEX: JOSHUA VIDES #CCIndex is a compendium providing the need-to-knows of the movers and shakers of street culture, regionally and internationally. Social media dictates the times. And Joshua Vides is a success story borne out of this technological milestone. An artist that’s always hovered in the creative scene and once the owner of street brand, CLSC, he’s blossomed along with the success of his viral re-imagination of the Nike AF1. His ongoing experiments with the Op-Art genre have seen him take over a Las Vegas chapel to outlining full-on building facades in his now iconic black and white sketch style. Hailing from sunny California, Joshua spent a good 10 years running CLSC when in the midst of a desk clear-out, he flexed his creative muscles on a pair of Reebok Classics. Loving the outcome of his innocent doodling, he [...]

#CCINDEX: TAKASHI MURAKAMI #CCIndex is a compendium providing the need-to-knows of the movers and shakers of street culture, regionally and internationally. Takashi Murakami combines Japanese precision and virtuosity of Nihonga-style painting with the most cutting edge techniques to achieve his mystifying pieces. An unwanted and under-appreciated savant of his home country, Murakami sought solace in the bubbling art scene of New York in the ‘80s, where he found a whole new creative lease on life. Abandoning the political and artistic territories of Nihonga, he, like many others in the post-war landscape of Japan in the ‘80s; became enchanted with the rise of manga and Otaku culture. That influx of new media mixed with a creative void, led him to jump into the world of contemporary art after attending a major solo exhibition of one of his compatriots, Shinro Ohtake. He was attracted to the world [...]

#CCINDEX: SUPREME  #CCIndex is a compendium providing the need-to-knows of the movers and shakers of street culture, regionally and internationally. It’s 1994. The scene? Downtown Manhattan, Lafayette Street. A quiet strip of antique stores, a firehouse and a machinist, but also a Keith Haring shop. James Jebbia started building the foundations of the world’s first billion-dollar streetwear brand right here. Supreme’s success was not the result of meticulous planning but more so the culmination of sheer luck, timing and good ol’ fashioned hard work. Jebbia grew up in Crawley, West Sussex, England and as a teen in the 80s, slogged away at Duracell Factory, spending all his spare change on trips to London to buy clothes from an elusive store that in his words, “carries the cool stuff that everybody was wearing—no big brands or anything.” A model of what Supreme was built [...]
