RAW DIAMONDS (former international creative atelier) organised a TEN/TEN expo in collaboration with house of Bacardi in Amsterdam. As one of 10 artists, RAW DIAMONDS asked us to create a ‘garage sale’ themed artwork. One catch, we could only use the colors black & red.

The assignment

Garage Sale. You are open to interpret the theme in your very own way...Get wild!

Initially really hyped to be part of this exposition, I did struggle with the ‘garage sale’ theme. How could I bring that theme to life in a poster of 50×70 cm?

Eventually this idea of a futuristic garage sale robbery came to mind. I started a rough sketch to get my process going, but in the process of vectorizing the style and layout changed completely.

The artworks of 10 different artists shown on the wall at house of Bacardi, Amsterdam.

The ‘garage sale’ was from 17.00 – 00.00 on March 23rd, 2012

RAW DIAMONDS screen printed 5 posters and 5 t-shirts of each artist which visitors could buy for a set price. Each poster was signed & numbered by the artist.


Together with a signed certificate of authenticity these became a true limited edition must-have.
