If there is one thing we took away from the Gucci Pre-Fall 2019 collection is the idea of "cultural juxtaposition", an idea strongly envisioned by creative director Alessandro Michele.
That idea looks towards counter-cultural groups, ones that stand out of the norm, who co-existed naturally, bringing a new meaning to self-expression and individualism. That brings us to the attention of a special collaboration between L'Officiel Malaysia and Gucci, where we feature six artists, each an expert in his/her respective fields, in an exclusive shoot to tell a story of what they think of individualism and self-expression.

THE TATTOO FIENDS
Hishiko Woo (@hishikotattoo):
“Tattoo is one of the things in the world that lasts a long time. I love to create designs that tell a story or evoke emotions, as I am usually emotional.”
Mandee Lee (@mandeemoko):
“I love how tattoo ages on human skin. Get tattooed, grow old and be buried with your tattoo. It gives depth to your personality and enhances your aura.”
Silas Oo (@silas.jpeg):
“I try to tap into the subconscious while sketching and coming up with new ideas. I position myself as an observer, and paint what I appreciate.”
Pang Hei (@icedout.lambo):
“Being an artist is synonymous with being curious in the quest to explore and experiment. My work revolves around doodles and stickers that echo the rebellious energy of our youth.”
