Challenging convention and exploring innovation, B.A.D. Space Gallery’s inaugural exhibit is infused with a hybrid vision! Artist Pia MYrvoLD’s fashion is feeding off her global art and use of emerging technologies in a way that is organic, intuitive and bursting with expression. A true testament to the ever-expanding aesthetic of our era, iconic futurist, and designer Pia MYrvoLD has injected San Francisco’s Dogpatch neighborhood with the highest conceptual playground through her exhibit Hybrid Love. With each new hybrid, Pia combines information in a cross-pollinated sensory experience that includes intellectual as well as physical interactivity. We were lucky enough to chat with Pia and shoot this editorial utilizing her wearable creations!
Pia’s intersecting world of art, design, architecture, fashion and film come together flawlessly in a dynamic creative alliance through her collaboration with B.A.D Space Gallery. Her work, between its beauty and meaning, shows us the different forms of wonder that exist. She originally started as a painter at 19, and to support herself started making and selling clothes inspired by the deconstructionist designers like Comme des Garçons, Issey Miyake and Yohji Yamamoto.
“In the 80s, people who supported my painting were furious that I started making clothes and showing up in high heels and red lipstick”, she laughs. “They were mad that I wasn’t dressing like a starving artist.” – Pia
“I like the fact that I take care of one aspect of my life, my clothes, and make it into my own skin, taste and story. Caring for oneself and how one look, is a real gift to the community. I believe in the giving, that you celebrate by using décor and creativity in how you present yourself to the community. ” – Pia
“Creativity is becoming more and more valuable: companies and content development depend on it. It makes the difference between a mediocre film and a great one. It always amazes me when I meet directors and people in leadership positions, how little vision they possess. They succeed as managers because of postions, politics, people skills and manipulation. But at the end of the day, their companies or cities will die or slow down, without the creative impulses.” – Pia
