Graffiti Artist Apexer Collabs With Timbuk2 On An Exclusive Bag Run
Graffiti heads to attention, this bag collab is one you won't want to miss.
Celebrating the spirit of artist Apexer and his very colorful vista of work, San Francisco backpack design house Timbuk2, have collaborated on a capsule line that's one of a kind and a serious must-have.
This collection marks the start of Timbuk2’s Future Shapers Campaign, embracing 2017 and beyond with a renewed focus on celebrating those who catalyze change and give back to the cities that we call home. To showcase the individuals who are leading the charge to tomorrow, Timbuk2 will share the story on how each of them are working towards this envisioned world with a special video series, unique Capsule Collections, and one-of-a-kind events in celebration of these Future Shapers and the overarching ethos of ceiling-breaking adventure.
To pay homage to Timbuk2’s San Francisco heritage, the brand is kicking off the series with street artist, Apexer. An SF native himself, Apexer started his career with a spray paint-filled messenger bag in tow, beautifying the streets of the city with pockets of vibrant color. Pulling inspiration from graphic design, high fashion, architecture, and abstract art, his work boasts loud hues and bold patterns that have been featured in major cities across the globe.
“Growing up in San Francisco, Timbuk2 has always been a ubiquitous force in the city’s creative spaces. There’s definitely a special synergy between bike messengers and street artists” says Apexer. “Both communities tend to be quick and constantly on the move, all while boasting a distinct individual style. Timbuk2 does a great job at appealing to both of these qualities, so when the brand approached me for this collab it was an easy choice for me to make.”
