A great artist has the ability to look at an ordinary object and pull together a creative work of art from the inside out. Graffiti artist Persue, is one of those great artists. While living in NYC, Persue became inspired by the "Wet Paint" signs often found in the subway stations and took a few home as canvases for his art. This led him to create his first Wet Paint Show, which brought together some of the city's most legendary graffiti artists, as well as, other creators from around the world. He tasked each and every artist involved with creating a 100% custom design that reflected their own personal style. And the result, well, it's pretty sensational.
On July 13th, Persue joined forces with fellow graffiti artist Wane for Wet Paint Philly, hosted in collaboration with High Art Production and Lapstone & Hammer. This show brought together 25 unique artists and introduced Lapstone's collaborative capsule apparel collection designed by Persue and with contributions by Enem and Wane.
The signs created for Wet Paint Philly are currently available for purchase on the Wet Paint website and the pieces are selling out quick. Additionally, Persue and Lapstone's capsule collection is now available on their website—and you won't want to miss these custom threads.
