Damier Johnson aka REBEL YUTHS 
*1983 in Aba
lives in Torino

From an African and immigrant background, not educated in fashion, Damier Johnson known as REBEL YUTHS creates colorful masks and fashion inspired by anthropology. The masks have horrific expressions that vacillate between comical and violent, often with sexual tension. They are also a reaction to his rage against colonialism and displacement as a immigrant in the EU.
