The 'Brand New Intention' Collection Shows Art by Reactor-88

This latest addition to the BNI, or 'Brand New Intention' collection presents a unique opportunity to wear the artwork of recognized artist Reactor-88. The Los Angeles-based web designer and digital artist began crafting his hand-painted vinyl works in 2005. Born Ryan Crippen, Reactor-88 stumbled into vinyl art while on a personal search to rediscover traditional painting.

Reactor-88’s vinyl work embodies his expertise as a graphic designer and his personal connection with traditional painting. The artist's appreciation for the street art aesthetic is clearly evident in the bold, strong lines of his work. While at first glance, his work appears stenciled, Reactor actually hand draws and paints every color and detail in his toys and illustrations.
