SEOULMATES

The two South Koreans Artime Joe (Yoo In-Joon) and Jay Flow (Im-Dong-Ju) got to know each other during their two years of military service and quickly discovered a common passion for graffiti art.

In 2001 they founded the JNJ Crew which is a graffiti design agency based in the very centre of the South Korean capital Seoul. Subsequently successful exhibitions and a wide range of commissioned works followed.

In 2006, Artime Joe and Jay Flow also founded the Seoulmates Crew (SM8) in collaboration with half-Korean graffiti artist Mogi (Christian Yun-Song Meyerholz) from Germany.

With their vivid characters Seoulmates link up graffiti elements with traditional Korean colors and shapes and thereby establish and transport their very own identity. By the hands of the Seoulmates Crew the art form graffiti which once emerged in the 1980s in New York is transformed into an expression of modern and urban yet very Korean attitude and lifestyle.

Pyromaniac is proud to present the spring/summer 2011 collection in a collaboration with the Seoulmates.
