Working in the basement of the John Street Studio with 7 other guys has created a unique atmosphere of “creative testosterone.” We all get along well and push each other to work more (creating the scenario where we are all here until 11:30 at night, 7 days a week). This has lead us to create our own republic, with its own declarations, members, and bylaws.
The Republic has gone public and been featured in print and at the Venice Bienale through guerrilla tactics.
We also have a mascot . . . evaristo, who takes all our vices so that we can concentrate on the important work we do here.
So next time you are in London (provided its in the next 2 months) come down and visit the Independent Republic of the basement (visa tax: a beer)
