Art collaborative FriendsWithYou (FWY) creates vibrant, dynamic, and joyful artworks that spans across mediums: from paintings and sculptures to experiential installations, live performances, and even virtual reality and animation. With a mission to spread a message of “magic, luck, and friendship” Samuel Albert Borkson and Arturo Sandoval III joined hands in their artistic venture.
It’s hard to put your finger on what exactly their collaborative does, but the results are sure to put a smile on your face. Influenced by the simple happiness found in everyday life, FWY started as an art experiment, creating soft sculptures as a means of spreading more accessible art. But what began as an experiment has long outgrown its humble beginnings.
“Our work is not only about positivity,” said Borkson in an interview with Fader. “It’s about facing the darkness with no fear and the entire spectrum of the human experience. Our work is a reflection of what we want for ourselves and then people have the choice to see it as they like.”
Designed to be accessible to all, their creations are a spoonful of sugar. Take a look for yourself!
