In the Magazine: Hiro Murai

Juxtapoz // Thursday, April 16, 2015
Over the last couple of years, Hiro Murai has emerged as a saught-after director for some of our favorite artists including Shabazz Palaces, St. Vincent and Spoon. More recently, Murai was behind Flying Lotus and Kendrick Lamar’s “Never Catch Me,” Childish Gambino’s “Sober,” and Earl Sweatshirt's "Grief."
