We took a short break, but Mighty Fan Features is back! Here to celebrate you, our amazing fans and your wonderful collections. The series kick started towards the end of 2019 with Kay Mason and we have featured 3 fans so far!
The series took a short break but it's back now with 2020's first feature - Gabriel Tan! You might better know him as @dailytribute on Instagram with his very clean and minimal shots of various art toys. Hailing from Singapore, let's meet the collector!
How long have you been collecting for?
I have been collecting since 2008, I used to be a sneakerhead which got me into vinyl toys from artists like Michael Lau, Jason Siu and Eric So which inspired their works from the streetwear scene. Around 2012, I got fascinated with the pop culture which directed my collection to what it is today.
How many Mighty Jaxx pieces do you have in your collection? Which is your favourite?
I have around 20, consisting of pieces from Yoskay Yamamoto, Clogtwo, Ron English, Luke Chueh, Huck Gee, Goin, Alexface, Quiccs, Abell Octovan, Phunk Studio, Supermama. My favourite pieces are Yoskay Yamamoto's "Wish Upon Me" and "Sideways".
Which Mighty Jaxx piece are you looking forward to most?
I'm looking forward to more pieces from Clogtwo, Yoskay Yamamoto and Alex Face.
Which Mighty Jaxx piece do you consider your holy grail?
My holy grail is definitely Clogtwo's first Hell Lotus. I contemplated getting it during the initial release but didn't, it's still one my biggest regrets.
Tell us your Mighty Jaxx story!
It all started with my Yoskay Yamamoto's "Wish Upon Me...". It took me a while to get mine as I wasn't sure of the direction I wanted my collection to go in. Initially, I felt that collecting the hype pieces will make me fulfilled, but it didn't. They lost their appeal to me after awhile. So I moved towards collecting what pieces I love now.
What I love about Mighty Jaxx is seeing different artists coming onto the platform to make their art come to life. Finding pieces I love from Mighty Jaxx releases always brings me great excitement. After ordering, i always look forward to their arrival. you know the quality of the pieces is always outstanding!
