Salute Life had the pleasure of attending  “Art Comes First” pop-up shop, on May 3rd located at the Space NYC, kicking off NYC x Design Week. The energy in the room was buzzing, the duo of the brand “Art Comes First” Shaka Maidoh, and Sam Lambert displayed bold minimalist pieces, that were edgy and rebellious. The drinks were pouring, the sounds were pulsating, and the mood was electric with a room full of creatives, tastemakers, influencers, and fashion enthusiast. Erica Johnson and Atibia “Broadway” Williams had the distinct honor of interviewing some of the attendees of the event, highlighting each person’s individual accomplishments and up and coming projects that these creatives are introducing to the world.
