Luka Sabbat, 18, is a professional cool kid, high-fashion model, social media magnet (375,000 die hard Instagram followers), and now recently, an artist. The Irish, English, German, Haitian grew up in the fashion industry, his mother is a stylist his father a designer, modeling was an inevitability I guess, but artist appears to be the right fit.
Recently Luka Sabbat premiered his first photographic collaboration with Noah Dillon, a visual media and photography artist he met through Instagram. After loads of exchange admiring each other’s work the two created a HOT ME$$, a photography series shot in Los Angeles and New York that dives deep into youth culture.
The series took young people of various backgrounds onto the city streets photographing them in situations unfamiliar to them. Punk kids dined at Cipriani while rich kids were left vulnerable seeking solace on the streets of Chinatown. The slow works offer an insider’s point of view on youth society that implies a human connection never seen before.
The two launched the series in cool kid fashion with a party. The response met with top attention from the music industry. The VIP event thrown in collaboration with MILK Studios included guests A$AP Rocky, Pusha T, Mazdack Rassi and Tyler The Creator.
As for Luka Sabbat, the cool kid recently shared in an interview with GQ that he’s over skinny jeans and he’d like to try acting.
