Satatttvision hosts Moose Knuckles Showroom

Yuri Sata, Andrea Sata and Mindshapes

Moose Knuckles has been busy recently. After opening a temporary showroom in Florence during Pitti Uomo 97, the Canadian-based luxury brand is coming back to Paris and hosting it’s second showroom.

During Paris Fashion week, Moose Knuckles offered fans a closer look at the Fall-Winter 2020 “Speed of Light” collection. The “Moose House” has continued the collection’s themes and inspiration with a preview in the showroom, until 28th January, in the Galerie Joseph, in Paris.

Moose House is an artistic and music project focused on the community and created by the brand itself showcasing a different underground scene featuring artists from all cultures. Inviting any young, unapologetic creators to take up residence and push boundaries, Moose House is a home, a beacon, a platform for the worlds creative community to congregate.

Moose Knuckles teamed-up with Satatttvision, the well-known creative and tattoo studio from Milan to curate the entertainment activities in both Florence and Paris showrooms. We caught up with Andrea, Yuri and Mindshapes at the Paris showroom and had a chat about their beginnings and collaborating with Moose Knuckles.
When did you create Satatttvision?
Andrea
I’m one of the owner of the studio. I was a creative director in an agency, it was super cool but I wanted to open my own place, new, fresh and mine. I tried to find a new way in the tattoo work. In Milan, there is a lot of tattoo places and you can find a lot of good artists. So I started this project with my own and personal point of view. Our studio is much more than a tattoo studio. It’s a showroom, a gallery, a boutique, and it’s full of drawings, sketches, etc. After a couple of months we realised a lot of people started to come and enjoyed it.
Yuri
Our studio in Milan has several artists. They all have their own style. People know that when they come to us they can find a wide variety of styles. Depending on what they are looking for, we send them to the right artist who will achieve what they have in mind.
The studio has existed for 4 years, and is well anchored in the Italian landscape. We also have customers from all over Europe and all over the world. It allows us to meet people from everywhere, and to travel and continue to learn new things to convey our knowledge, our culture to others.
You curated a space for Moose Knuckles during the Pitti Uomo 97. How was the experience ?
Yuri
The collaboration with Moose Knuckles was born in Florence. I created flashes that I made on the theme of the speed of light and the future. It was good to mix fashion and art and they let us create our own stuff.
Andrea
They got in touch with us and we thought it would be great to create something cool with them around fashion and tattoos. They offered us to customize the hoodies. It was cool and original, with our vision and good vibes. We share our artistic vision.
How did you meet?
Andrea
We were very young. We used to paint graffiti in the street and we met in a particular place in the center of Milan. A mother, whose son died painting graffiti, opened a place to host artists and to get them off the streets that can be dangerous. She offered them a quiet and safe place with walls so they can paint legally. We met there and we are brothers since then with Yuri.
Mindhsapes
I entered Satatttvision a couple of years ago because my master tattooist was a good friend of them. When I joined them, it was like entering a collective of artists. Tattoo designers usually start to draw very young and get into tattoo work later. When I got into Satatttvision, I realised everyone there has their own passion before and they brought it into the studio.
Why Satatttvision?
Andrea
S.A.T.A is an acronym of Sempre A Testa Alta (Always hold your head high). I’m not a tattooist, I’m an artist, a painter. When I was younger, I started with graffiti and my crew, with the other owner of the studio Yuri, was called Sata. When we opened the studio, we kept that name. Six months ago, we started to play music with other friends and it’s called “Sata Musica”. We organise now house music parties in Milan, but we also performed in Rome, Venice, and Firenze.

How would you define your work?
Mindshapes
I define my work with keywords like waves, stripes, shapes, flows. It’s a distortion of what exists in the real life. It looks like life that comes and goes, it’s the flow of life. It’s not figurative. It’s like the stream of consciousness. When you look at it, it’s inspiring. You see what you want to see.
How do you work together?
Andrea
People don’t usually enter randomly. They enter because they like our studio. We are 9 people in the studio, and 8 are tattooists. They all have their very own style.
Mindshapes
They usually come with an idea they picked from the internet so when they get to us, we take them into a direction, they trust us.
Do you follow trends?
Andrea
When I want to create something, first I try to understand what I am about to do, I talk to the person. I don’t really care about what others do. I always want to do something new, from my personal point of view. I hope that people will like it and they usually do.
Does your art has changed over time?
Andrea
I changed over time, I’m always changing my art and evolving.
Mindshapes
I started 3 years ago but since then I’ve already completely changed. It’s not like I’m not myself anymore but I get inspired by different things I tried to improve and I have a better understanding of what I want to do.
Do you have upcoming projects?
Andrea
We got a lot of projects coming up but we cannot talk about that yet; We have new things in music or art. Our studio in Milan is an amazing place so we want to do something there and we’ll make it happen soon.
