Design by Raf Reyes: during my only 20+ years on this piece of rock we call Earth, i’ve had the immense honoVR + pleasVRe to have been able to meet Virgil IRL, and talk to him 🤲🤲 Truly really he was my spiritual father & role-model to me, and back-to-back with both the ‘vre-edit piece & ‘VIRGIL WAS HERE’ statement pieces i vreleased earlier this year, this new one ‘YOUNG LEGEND’ basically pays tribute to his youth. halftoned Virgil (made of 149305 points) in his twenties. tha OG era. golden twenties. when he had just finished his architecture curriculum/@Rockford Uni, & was just working in a screen printing shop (before being spotted by Ye and Don C in Chicago). flamboyant. passionate. hot-headedness ardor of the youth yudig. continuing on his legacy/vrespecting the set. like he said “the process is the practice | the artifacts are just the side effects’. N-Joi ®® vr ❤️🔥
