If you’re an avid SoJones reader, you must have been familiar with this brand. Teruo Artistry is a brand we constantly come across, but haven’t gotten the chance to know deeper. Thank goodness they reached out to SoJones.com earlier this year and the long-overdue interview with Deep Watters, President of Teruo Artistry, finally happened. Watters tells SoJones what Teruo Artistry is all about.

Introduce yourself and describe how your brand was started?
My name is Deep Watters, President of Teruo Artistry. The brand first started years back as a hobby and a way to get my brother’s (TTW) art out. Shirts were the perfect medium. Since then, it has developed into a creative lifestyle brand that now encompasses art, music and fashion. The company is named Teruo after our grandfather, Teruo Iyama – who became a successful artist and entrepreneur after being incarcerated in the Japanese-American concentration camps of WWII. My brother now carries on the Teruo legacy. Teruo means “sunshine man” in Japanese. Our brand represents and supports any and all how follow their passion, by any dreams necessary.

Describe this season’s theme for your line. Include any sources of inspiration (examples: 80’s punk, muses like Amber Rose, 70’s disco bands, Kanye, etc)
Our lines are always inspired by music, art, creativity and passion. The current line also has an emphasis on nature and tools of creation.

Any product placements on celebs to keep an eye out for (examples: publicity photos, magazines, movies, music videos etc)
You might see people like DJ Skee, IYAZ, Jay Sean, Six Reasons, Eva Longoria wearing our shirts to name a few…

What has been a surprise fashion hit over the last year? (a particular piece, a look or even another brand)
I’m still trippin’ off the tight jeans movement… That is beyond me.

What current fashion trend would you like to see thrown overboard?
I’m gonna go with the same answer – tight jeans. On a side note, I’m glad the whole skull/bones & angel wing trend is leaving as well.

What is/was one of your most prized fashion pieces, past or present?
I love my hand-painted TTW limited edition hoodie! My brother is a beast. I’m also loving my new Keep kicks I just copped. My all-time favorite are my Jordan 4’s though…

TuPac or Biggie?
Tupac, because of his passion.
