3 Shibuya was founded on the art and design of Jorge Rivas.
What started as a childhood obsession with graffiti, break dancing and skateboarding during the early 80’s and 90’s in the heart of the Harbor, Wilmington CA, Los Angeles has since evolved into a dynamic, grassroots collection of wearable street art.
Jorge Rivas started his career in 1999 as a full time Graphic Designer working for Very established companies in the apparel industry and later lead design teams as an Art Director. A variety of accomplished companies have met success with Jorge on their team, including: Ecko, Baby Phat, Pony, ODM, Hart & Huntington, Affliction, Aqua VI, Koos, Chip & Pepper, Mighty Fine, Christian Audigier, Shaun White and many more.
3 Shibuya was first conceived in Tokyo in 2007 during one of Jorge’s many business trips abroad. Inspired by his stay in the Shibuya area of Tokyo, Jorge decided that he wanted to pursue his passion for building his own unique brand and company. Jorge has been fortunate to travel countless times to New York and all across the United States. He pulls inspiration from his travels, art, music, culture and every day life experiences.
