Gear: The Grifters present urban masks and more


"The upcoming collection of the Parisian based troublemakers The GriftersTM is rooted in the deeper underground scene and turns their everyday tools like ski mask and bolt cutters into high fashion. With jungle inspired geometric pattern they fit out the urban warrior for the modern concrete jungle. The collection contains t-shirts, polos and sweats made of high quality cotton improved by unique embroidery, artisan patchworks and fine screen prints."

"Coming from the necessity of anonymity in a world which prohibits freedom, we have crafted four original ski masks, which will differentiate you at any riot, subway tunnel or ski slope. They have been produced from high quality 100% Merino wool and Merino wool mixed with acrylic. For the rest of the collection, which contains sweatshirts, t-shirts and a bucket hats, we have used 100% cotton materials, 100% Merino wool and suede. Most of them have custom embroideries and handmade patchworks."

The collection drops at 15 April at The Grifters.

NYC: April 17, 2014: Graffiti history talk at City As Canvas exhibit

OLD’S KOOL: The Roots of New York Graffiti
Thursday, April 17 at 6:30 pm

Blazing a trail for graffiti art back in the 1970s, New York City teens claimed the city’s walls and mass transit system for their canvases—and in the process invented a new art form.

Jay J.SON Edlin, veteran graffiti artist, historian, and author of Graffiti 365 (Harry N. Abrams, 2011), discusses graffiti and street art with revolutionary but unsung writers of the ‘70s: icons COCO 144, JESTER ONE, LSD OM, and Al Diaz, a.k.a. BOMB ONE and later SAMO (in collaboration with Jean Michel Basquiat).

Presented in conjunction with City as Canvas. Free for Museum members; $12 students/seniors; $16 general public.
