Video: 123Klan, the 20th anniversary
123Klan is the perfect blend between graffiti and graphic design. Klor and Scien, partners in crime since the early 90s, started their graffiti careers in France and also developed a strong interest in design and illustration. Ten years later 123Klan was born as a studio – now based in Montreal – specialized in branding, art direction, character design and lettering.
Their work is influenced by not only graffiti but also by manga, pop culture and graphic design masters like Neville Brody. The result is a distinct style full of geometric forms, vivid colors and easily recognizable characters with an old school touch.
“Style is the message” has been their leitmotif for the last 20 years, and what a better way to celebrate it than having a little blackbook session and painting a whole block with other pals?
