Writer, passionate journalist, founder of La MJC, Club 75 and ALL GONE leading mind.
He has managed to build a timeless cult creating discussion and dissecting the biggest launches from the previous year’s releases that have helped shape the latest trends within Street culture.
But, more than anything else, he has been capable to reinvent the past, present and future of publishing, in fact All Gone is a perfect balance of web and physical publishing and he was the first to see that potential.
This year mark 15 years of making the All Gone Book!
It’s been an amazing journey, and it can only get better!
For this new edition, Michael Dupouy continues to witness the immense creativity that defines our beloved street culture and the gamut of its industry and states:
“For 15 years, the selection giving life to the All Gone pages has become an ongoing challenge, as the permanent effervescence of this culture is constantly offering ever more fascinating and ambitious projects.
2020 remains totally paradoxical: while we have just experienced, by far, the saddest year of the century, we have never had such a breadth of powerful and exciting subjects to choose from in order to make up the pages of this book.
To illustrate this paradox, I thought it made sense to invite an artist whom I have appreciated for many years to collaborate on the two new covers of All Gone 2020. Among the multitude of brilliant works by the awesome Eric Yahnker, I found these two were particularly symbolic of the past year: I can’t resist thinking of Mobb Deep’s classics “Hell on Earth” and “Survival of the Fittest” when I see Michael navigating his way through the difficulty among the demons, and I can’t stop thinking about the best for the future when I imagine Yoda asking Lebron to rely on the Force to better apprehend the future.”
We, as supporter of Michael Dupouy and his vision, are extremely proud to be once again one of the selected stores for the Worldwide release.
Looking forward to better days, here are some of our best moments from past ALL GONE launches, we can’t wait to embrace our community again, but until then STAY SAFE out here.
