A Farewell to Nigo
In the past we’ve drooled over BAPE toys and limited edition items found on eBay. Since 1993, A Bathing Ape’s Creative Director Nigo was the soul of the company. All good things come to an end. “As of April 30, 2013 the term of my contract with I.T Limited (the new owners of A Bathing Ape since January 2011) as Creative Director has concluded” writes Nigo. “This brings to a close my 20 years of work creating and designing A Bathing Ape.” Sniff. Sniff. Even artist KAWS made this beautiful painting in homage of his dear friend. Nigo will now exist in the land of freelance creator.
Expect to see all of Nigo’s work at BAPE fly off the shelves at eBay. We suggest you jump on it asap.
