LOCAL FRIEND OF THE BRAND - MARK ONG
Singaporean sneaker and streetwear designer and artist, Mark Ong, also known as Mr. Sabotage is one of the artists featured in IWC’s worldwide campaign for The Big Pilot’s Watch. Inspired by his childhood spent skateboarding on the streets of Singapore and his passion for art, Ong has been customizing sneakers for almost 20 years.
Since selling his first pair of customized Nikes online in 2002 and launching his own sneaker design brand SBTG (short for Sabotage) in 2003, he has redesigned over 10,000 pairs of trainers and established a dedicated following of sneaker enthusiasts locally and globally. From hand-painting in vibrant colors to embroidering and accessorizing, Ong takes two to 12 hours to complete redesigning a pair of sneakers. Some elements that he takes inspiration from for his designs include Singapore’s urban landscape and punk and hip-hop music.
At this exhibition, Mark and his team of artists will be doing streetwear customizations demonstrations as well as showcasing a selection of his creations and designs.
