Artist and designer Evan Hecox displays his fascination with the urban landscape on Incase products for the sixth installment of Curated by Arkitip. Available today , the Evan Hecox series has been issued in three limited editions: London, New York and Tokyo. As the project’s first artist to present a series of products, Hecox brings to life nontraditional depictions of the famed cities and their associated national emblems on our signature MacBook Sleeve and iPhone Slider Case.
Drawing inspiration from the complexity of the modern metropolis, Hecox’s stylistic approach is based on the process of amplification as it affects form and color: breaking down the image, removing certain elements and emphasizing others. In his original artistry for Curated by Arkitip, Hecox filters the mundane into captivating illustrations of London, New York and Tokyo seemingly filled with narratives beyond the images themselves, and applies them to MacBook Sleeves. The Hecox Slider Cases complement the three Sleeves, bearing instantly recognizable national symbols of the three cities. Hecox re-imagined the symbols through his stylistic approach, resulting in artistic interpretations that are both familiar and new.
Hecox has found success both as a commercial and fine artist recognized for his unique stylistic approach that blends photography, hand drawn illustration and graphic design. With an extensive portfolio that includes skateboard graphics, illustrations, books, television ads and fine art, Hecox has been exhibited in galleries across the globe, including Los Angeles, Sydney, London and Tokyo.
The video element to accompany the release of the product line is now online. Similar to what we do with the Chronicles, the video will give the viewer a closer look at the process and inspirations of the artist.
