10 yrs ago, Volcom had the opportunity to work with an amazing crew of Tokyo artists under the collective crew called the Dyezu Experiment. The Dyezu crew had a small gallery in Nakameguro, not an ordinary gallery, but, more of a small friendly outlet to inspire, create and support artists to share their gifts in its purist form.

 

Walls were covered in paint, with a small skate ramp set up, and even a pop up surf store ( years before the word pop up become a trend in retail) Since then the individual artist have branched out, with amazing success and reputations from New York to Tokyo.

 

This October, Volcom has had the opportunity to share with a whole new generation, the first Dyezu reunion called the Experimental Art Surf Shop. This event will launch with a Dyezu’s documentary at the Volcom Harajuku stores 5th anniversary party, followed up with a collective art exhibition at the Volcom Tokyo offices and a book launch with Buena books. Please check the below website and if you get a chance come visit.
