Director and creative director Ricky Saiz is perhaps best known as the co-head designer of streetwear brand Supreme. Fueled by creativity and collaboration, Ricky has also served as a consultant for Kanye West’s DONDA.
A self-taught filmmaker, Ricky’s latest collaboration was the viral hit music video“Apeshit” for The Carters, aka Beyoncé and JAY-Z. The music video, which was shot in Paris’s famed Louvre Museum, was hailed by critics in both the music and art world for it’s subversive message on Western Art. The music video received 8 nominations at the 2018 MTV Video Music Awards, in categories Video of the Year, Best Collaboration, Best Hip-Hop Video, Best Cinematography, Best Direction, Best Art Direction, Best Choreography and Best Editing, winning Best Cinematography and Best Art Direction. The music video was nominated for Best Music Video at the 61st Grammy Awards.
Ricky has also directed Beyoncé’s music video «Yoncé,» lo-fi videos for singer Hanni El Khatib and rapper Cam’ron, as well as a very promising Garage Girls movie for Garage Magazine, featuring models wearing Calvin Klein clothes. His commercial work includes Smirnoff’s campaign celebrating the brand’s 75th anniversary, as well as spots for H&M and YSL.
Ricky plans to use his professional experience with art and design as an «encore» path to help shape his ideas for films he would like to direct.
