NEW YEAR NO RULES

W Maldives - Extreme Wow Ocean Haven Private Pool

COLOUR OUTSIDE THE LINES WITH GRAFFITI LEGEND JOHN "CRASH" MATOS

This year, we're upending tradition and rewriting the rules of the holidays with a street art–style take on the season. In the spirit of the graffiti artists who inspired us, W Maldives is pushing the boundaries and coloring outside the lines in 2017. We've partnered with graffiti legend John "Crash" Matos to create a custom tree and celebrate the New Year with bold messages in bright colors.

ABOUT THE ARTIST

Raised in the Bronx, Crash first honed his craft tagging subway cars. These days he can be found collaborating with luxury brands including Ferrari, Tumi and Fender. Like W, Crash also has deep roots in the music world, with close connections to Grandmaster Flash, Swizz Beatz and Alicia Keys as well as a partnership with MTV.
