How did Nigo get the idea for A Bathing Ape’s dope ass camo? Andy Warhol released a series of paintings based on the concept of camouflage in the 1980’s. The study of camouflage gave Andy the opportunity to explore the use of disruptive patterns based on the military’s motif. Warhol’s camouflage paintings would also become the last group of paintings he produced before passing away in 1987. Warhol’s approach to camouflage has been applied to other forms of camouflage, particularly in fashion. A Bathing Ape’s creator, Nigo, was heavily influenced by Warhol. He is known for his collection of popular American products, including Warhol’s famous “Campbell’s Soup” paintings. Nigo’s pop influences were later reproduced into limited edition collections of Bape apparel in 1993. Now in 2009, the Bape camouflage is known around the world. [via killazbee]
