los angeles-based multidisciplinary studio friendswithyou have opened their first-ever exhibition ‘happy rainbow’ with sino art and tmtplazato in hong kong. the display showcases the studio’s well-known, colorful characters scaled up to create a vivid interactive art installation. the project is a reflection of the atelier’s polychromatic philosophy, where they intend to foster positivity through the experience of play and creativity. the collective presents a miscellany of eight mixed media sculptures: ‘the oracle’, ‘the rainbow eye’, ‘the rainbow traveler’, ‘bubbly’, ‘the good look’, ‘the golden receptor’ and ‘the purple’.
