TAIKAN-BY MESCONDI, Taikan's Latest Collab With 22 Year-Old Vancouver Artist

Filed under: 
On Our Radar

One of our fave brands started a new series called TAIKAN BY where they pair an artist with Taikan bags of their choice, allowing them to create unique content in their own perspective. 

Their latest TAIKAN-BY campaign is in collaboration with a Vancouver-based photographer, Mescondi, a twenty-two year old artist who's got an eye for art. Inspired by photography and the unique vivacity of the early 2000's, he explores the new Mesh Collection by TAIKAN in collaboration with his vibrant aesthetic, and mesmerizing use of props and muses. 

"A lot of my inspiration comes from cinema. Movies and the escape to an alternate reality they provided, was a huge part of my youth. The perspective comes from wanting to create that cinematic feel. Each subject or model I work with becomes a character in my mind, and I am shooting that character. Directors like Tarantino and Kubrick really made me fall in love with the beauty and emotion presented by use of colour, and the importance of details within each frame having importance."

See below for photographs taken by Mescondi for the latest TAIKAN BY collaboration, as well as all pieces from the Taikan Mesh Collection for any spring/summer style stories you may be working on.
