Raf Wathion & The Mill Turntable Lexus

Raf Wathion and The Mill, LA teamed up to create this nuanced piece of art for Lexus via Team One.

Taking a sculptural approach, three of the Lexus’ new features are represented through visual analogy. As some car work seems to exploit the peak of technical and stylistic saturation, it’s always refreshing to see directors take a more subtle approach.

Though this spot was produced while at Rabbit, Raf has recently joined Skunk for US representation.
