Kervin Brisseaux is a first-generation Haitian-American whose illustration style incorporates fashion, music, and other facets of pop culture. He's also a Design Director at the world-renowned brand design agency Vault49. Rich Tu and Kervin talk about all of his influences (including 90s movies that defined our lives), how he almost became an architect, and how he defied a conservative upbringing through art and culture. Also, there's a lot of sneaker talk, and how Virgil and StockX are helping (or hurting?) The Culture. *Purchase the NIKE "First Gen" at cltvtr.co/nyc_rich_tu (Profits to FirstGenBurden will go to the ACLU to help protect immigrants' rights)
