Artist Jaque Fragua returns to the streets
The campaign for the clothing line includes a slick video shot on the streets of Albuquerque. Media artist Dylan McLaughlin says he followed Fragua and Rael over the course of about an hour and a half. “We started in Nob Hill and moved downtown,” he tells me via email. “All the imagery in the that area is iconic and recognizable. Albuquerque has a very great aesthetic when viewed from the right perspective.” Since that perspective here includes what appears to be illicit graffiti-making, it remains to be seen whether the video will bring the right kind of attention to the project. Still, there’s something bewitching about seeing iconic local spots photographed so stylishly. “Jaque sort of just did his thing and I did mine,” says McLaughlin. “Creation and collaboration [are] real when each person is doing what feels right.”
