We are happy to announce our new collaboration with Montana and Berlin street artist SUPERBLAST. Together we created the nail polish TRUth color. The new nail polish destination “TRU – Trujillo” in Peru, marks uslu airline’s entry into a new field of art infused collaborations. Colour is one of the first tools that come to mind when one thinks about artistic expression. So enlisting ‘real’ artists to curate for us was just another of our no-brainers.
TRU was known as ‘superblast blue’ when introduced in Montana spray cans in 2006. Then just as now, Berlin based graffiti artist Superblast was the driver behind the blue. Our nail polish also TRU marks the launch of a special edition of this spray paint.
About the artist: Superblast discovered the sparkling world of graffiti writing in 1989. It opened up a whole new universe to him which led to a very personal style, tinted by Hip Hop, Punk Rock and Skateboard culture. He lives in Berlin and works as an artist and graphic designer. The artwork he creates is themed around psychological archetypes, fictional mythologies and his personal utopia. And has been shown at Merry Karnowsky Gallery (Berlin), Lodown Westberlin Gallery (w/ Jay “One” Ramier), Two Window Project (Berlin), Faces&Laces Moscow (w/ KRink, Zedz), Studio 44 Berlin (w/ Mode 2), Civilist (Berlin), WoodWood Store (Berlin) and on the Berlin Festival 2011 (where he also won the 1st Art Village Prize).
Superblast has also left his marks in the streets of Buenos Aires, Chongqing China, Barcelona, New York City, Johannesburg SA, Sao Paulo, etc. during his travels.
Besides his eclectic artistic explorations, he is known for collaborations with international brands, such as WeSC, Mercedes Benz Mixed Tape, Bread & Butter Berlin tradeshow, Veltins Beer, and others. His book “Neo Utopia – The Art & Work of SuperBlast” was published worldwide by Publikat / Gingko Press.
