Rafael Mendes | My Legacy

“I’ve dedicated the past 16 years of my life to jiu jitsu. Because of this art I had the opportunity to travel the world, meet people that I never thought I would meet, and compete against the previous champions that inspired me to push myself harder everyday. I've won the world championship 6 times, ADCC twice and cemented myself as the greatest featherweight of all time. There's nothing left to prove. Some may see this is a an end, but for me it's the beginning of something new. The same dedication and passion that I put towards my competition career will now be refocused to other aspects of my life." - Rafael Mendes

TRUE STORIES | Bordeaux, FR Exhibition Launch

On Friday May 5, ANP artist Benjamin Jeanjean (FRA) launched his second TRUE STORIES exhibition, showcasing his latest artworks and a limited edition book gathering the life-changing experiences of the refugees he started the project with back in November ’16. With 50+ people showing-up at the Studio MONIKA in Bordeaux, it was a nice community moment for the Bordeaux underground amateur scene, the mix of artists, parents, children and passing-by locals allowing for an authentic gathering around such a strong project. With the clear aim of extending the vision further in the near future, Jeanjean will be investigating new opportunities through the edition of his TRUE STORIES book, and look at other unexplored territories as the refugees’ global issue continues to affect thousands around the world. Stay tuned…
