“You just need your surroundings and you can evolve”- Mark Ong aka SBTG, takes viewers through his creative process and roots growing up in the perceived restrictions of Singapore. Finding inspiration in the simplest of forms, SBTG creates the “138” shoe collaboration with FICE Boutique in Salt Lake City, Utah and explains how the Misfits inspiration guided the collaboration. On the surface the film purposes to expose the cerebral world of SBTG and an emerging sub-culture in Singapore, but the film becomes deeply personal as SBTG reveals how his experiences have affected his work and current mindset.
In this video, Mark Ong reminds us all to pursue the passion and and not the success. “We are 138” is an awe-inspiring success story of Mark Ong and his awesome designs.
