What is hot in fashion this year?
Innovative art and music inspired fashion-CASUAL, COMFORTABLE, AND SOPHISTICATED with an edge!

Rizumu-the Japanese derivative of the word rhythm in English is the invariable representation of the fast-paced-technology moved, artistic and musically inspired digital world we live in. Our reality has taken us to view things from a diverse angle and intelligent thought. Music is the release to all of our daily struggles and rhythm is what keeps us motivated, which represents our brand sufficiently. Inspired by contemporary and modern-street art with technology inspired concepts derived from space, music and mythical characters-the Rizumu brand encourages international artists to express their art-work through wearable means of fashion and identity. This brand is produced and made in the U.S.A, remixed by Japan-and “Created on Earth.” Blissful Elephant:

Inspired by ancient East Asian mysticism fused with hip-hop culture-Blissful Elephant combines ancient classical art and urban hip-hop culture to shape an art-piece exemplifying the synthesis of ancient and contemporary modern art. Hand sketched and conceptualized through sheer creative ingenuity-Blissful elephant has one hand on the mixing board, another on his headphones while holding a record with his trunk wearing a baseball hat and an oversized watch and bracelet-this art piece truly exemplifies originality.

Enlightened Alien:

Enlightened Alien was inspired by Japanese animation, futuristic inventiveness and the ancient art-form of yoga emerging from India to form an art-piece which combines several elements while gaining inspiration from space-crafts, inventive mystic ideology and nature to form an art-piece which truly embodies creativity, imagination and ingenuity. Hand-sketched from conception to completion-Enlightened Alien represents the artist’s versatility and inventiveness to create a numinous character which embodies innovation through contemporary modernization of a classical art form.


So Fly Samurai:

So Fly Samurai was inspired buy the revered ancient art-form of the Samurai in Japan while adding a western influenced modern urban flare to the character. Hand sketched from conception to completion-wearing converse tennis shoes while combining ancient Samurai attire, a silver and black Mohawk spinning the world on his finger with a skateboard from the year 2825 and a boom box-this modern adaptation of a classical and mystical character define originality, humor and innovation while paying homage to hip-hop, Japanese animation and skateboarding.

MC Sumo:

MC Sumo is a battling hip-hop artist holding a microphone while casually leaning on an oversized set of speakers intimidating his opponents with lyrical prowess and intensity. This inventive hand sketched adaptation of a Sumo wrestler combined with hip-hop exemplifies the essence of Sumo Battles in the 21st century. Wearing oversized diamond jewelry and a tattoo of “MC Sumo”-the artist has taken originality to an entirely new dimension of creativity and vision.

Funk Tek Robot:

Funk-Tek Robot was inspired by Japanese animation, hip-hop, and the counter-culture of electronic music to create an extraordinary adaptation of robots in the 23rd century. Dancing on a spinning record-inspired by break-dancing and our fascination with robots-this hand sketched pieces with equalizers in the back-ground with the slogan-“ batteries not included-powered by Rizumu“-this piece exemplifies our brand’s creativity, originality and ingenuity through the power of music, art and soul.

FREE MUSIC:

Free Music was inspired by old-school hip-hop from the days of freestyle battles in NYC to break-dancing battles in Los Angeles where boom-box radios were the foundation of these events, and blaring speakers could be heard from miles away The radio confined in a cell signifies the emergence of and evolution of technology whose evolution form large radios to MP3 players which are the size of a stamp. It also signifies the passion of old-school and the excitement and nostalgia it carries to this day, which is often over-looked by newer trends in music; therefore this piece pays old-school hip-hop homage, while honoring old school artists with the boom-box playing the song-“Fight the Power.” This piece was hand-sketched from conception to completion by artist-J. Bhakta wanted to use contemporary animation, modern urban art, and graffiti techniques to produce an innovative concept which delivers the message-FREE MUSIC.

DJ ROBOTIX:

DJ-ROBOTIX represents the emergence of technology in both music and contemporary art while utilizing Japanese anime in its style, concept and design techniques. This piece is set in the year 2099 where Robots are performing at nightclubs and concerts while DJ Robotix has been transformed into a celebrity artist soaring over the crowd of music fans. Mr. Robotix is also quite fashion forward wearing hip-hop jewelry and trendy shoes with state of the art headphones. Hand sketched by Japanese artist-N. Hiroshige-the concept sought to fuse urban music culture with contemporary and modern art while utilizing Japanese anime and innovative design, while displaying an un-plugged cable with the phrase-“Batteries not included-Powered by Soul.”

THE RHYTHM EQUATION:

TRE was inspired by a certain scientist creating the mathematical formula for the art of music through calculations of equations relating to the principles of rhythm, tempo, beats, poetry and lyricism. He is carrying a boom-box for inspiration while listening to hip-hop music to methodically construct mathematical analysis to calculate the science and formula of hip-hop. Hand-sketched as an original creation by Japanese artist N. Hiroshige-this piece applies animation, technology and wit to produce this innovative and contemporary art piece to construct the mathematical equation of Rhythm.

Rhythm Makes the World go Round:

RMTWGR was inspired by the notion that our universe is influenced by the undeniable and powerful force of rhythm that surrounds us on a daily basis. J. Bhakta utilized a fusion of contemporary and urban art-forms to create this inspirational tribute to music and urban art through hand sketched art techniques and fresh uses of color shading for this three dimensional painting on a wall set in New York City 1985.

FLASHY:

Flashy as inspired by society’s fascination for celebrity notoriety, media and fashion with a comical interpretation of paparazzi and fane. Flashy interprets the evolution of the camera from a colossal and complicated machine to a hand held device with its own unique personality.

RHYTHM PHYSICS:

RP was inspired by the physics of the planet Earth and the science involving its rotation-which in J. Bhakta’s imagination was Rhythm, thus the world is displayed spinning on it’s axis by two Rhythm logo enabling the Earth to spin through the gravitational forces of music. Hand sketched by Jay-this piece pays accolade to our motto-“Rhythm Makes the World Go Round.”
