David Ben David Talks Inspiration Behind Collaboration
"To me, Fight Club was all about self-expression and inspired me to follow my own path and not what society pushed me to do. It’s about creating a company that is the anti-corporate America and creating an ecosystem and a platform for creative individuals to express themselves. I want SprayGround to be known as a place where fashion, hair, skin, religion and tattoos aren’t frowned upon – anything goes!”
