Please Introduce Yourself...
Gavin Mathieu. Founder and Creative Director of Supervsn Studios.
How Did Supervsn Studios Come About?
I was really inspired by my group of homies that were all creative and the community of creatives that I built relationships with and worked with over the years. It was this sense of PURPOSE that connected all of us and that's what inspired me to create Supervsn as an idea company and a gift to the creative community as a form of appreciation and acknowledgment. CREATIVITY MAKES THE WORLD GO ROUND.

What Are Some Artists That You Would Like To Work With And What Are Some Of Your Favourite Partnerships So Far?
Uhm, I'd say Lauren Halsey, she's one of my favourite artists, Chanel Tres, I think he's special, Hebru Brantley, another iconic artist for my generation, Jacob Rochester for real.
I know most of them personally as well which is funny because we don't really talk about collaborating but it's usually the people in my day to day that I'm inspired by the most or that I align with creatively. We could never collaborate on anything but I think there's a piece of all of them that has inspired me and that's enough. I enjoy also just being friends with people separate from work. But coming off of this Union collab which is my favourite to date - I'm definitely thinking bigger outside of clothing and apparel!
How Do You Unwind When You Are Not Working On SS?
I spend time with my kids and family. I travel. If I don't have time to fly anywhere I like to just drive out to the beach and get a hotel room and chill. I like to turn my brain off for a second and just catch a vibe, open myself up to new inspiration.

Please Give Us A Little Insight Into Your Selections For The Latest HAL RADIO Playlist.
A lot of it is music that I listen to get creative. I'm sort of a creature of habit, I listen to the same few playlist for different moments in my life. I would say this is my creative playlist so hopefully someone else can use it to find inspiration and make something too!
