Established in 2002 by Miami-based artists Samuel Borkson and Arturo Sandoval III, FriendsWithYou set forth on a mission to spread the idea of Magic, Luck, and Friendship™ around the world, and become Friends-With-You!
Designed as a resource center for all things creative, FriendsWithYou is a unique think-tank that has the ability to seamlessly incorporate their distinct artistic style and one-of-a-kind ideas into a wide range of mediums and applications. FriendsWithYou’s work spans all creative realms from fine art to large-scale experiential installations and interactive events to public playgrounds, directorial work, live performances, animation and multimedia projects, branding and licensing. All FriendsWithYou projects offer once in a lifetime experiences, as FriendsWithYou is in a category of its own as a first class multidisciplinary art collective and creative studio.
Throughout the last eight years, FriendsWithYou has gained international recognition as pioneers in the field of experiential art. FriendsWithYou experiential installations are fully immersive experiences that draw audiences into a magical world where the line between imagination and reality is blurred. From Pictoplasma in Berlin to Art Basel Miami, FriendsWithYou has been invited to participate in some of the most respected art happenings around the world. FriendsWithYou Fine Art has been exhibited and/or included in the permanent collections of Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA), the Indianapolis Museum of Art (IMA), Haus der Kulturen der Welt Museum Berlin, and Galerie Emmanuel Perrotin among others.
With their unique artistic style and astute technical abilities, FriendsWithYou’s commercial work for hire division, appropriately named FWYstudios, has been sought after to develop the image and identity of some of the world’s most prominent brands, such as Nike, MTV, Red Bull, Target, Gwen Stefani’s Harajuku Lovers, Coca-Cola, etc.
Their extensive portfolio includes campaign strategy, animation & directorial services, branding, character design, illustration, print design, product design, packaging & POS, online integration, web and new media, etc. With the ability to think and produce on a level larger than life, FriendsWithYou has always over-exceeded the expectations of all of their partners and clients.
