FriendsWithYou is the fine art collaborative of Samuel Borkson and Arturo Sandoval III, working collectively since 2002 with the sole purpose of spreading the positive message of Magic, Luck, and Friendship™. As artists working in a variety of mediums, including paintings, sculpture, large-scale experiential installations, public playgrounds, published works and live performances, FriendsWithYou’s mission is to affect world culture by cultivating special moments of spiritual awareness and powerful, joyous interaction.
FriendsWithYou’s work is designed to be accessible to all.
FriendsWithYou actively works to spread the message of connectivity around the world, with a simple mission to become Friends-With-You.
The Cloud has been a symbolic icon of FriendsWithYou’s work since the conception of the creative. To the artists, the Cloud represents a key illustration of the FriendsWithYou mission. It is a symbol with the power to transcend the viewer to a relaxed and joyous state, revealing that everything in our world has a soul and a purpose- as spiritual essence. This animist perspective reflects in FWY’s work as a sweet visual soundscape, casting a positive message of happiness and connectivity.
FriendsWithYou views the cloud emblem as “an enduring symbol of love and guidance on a light filled path”.
