Four years later, UNDRCRWN continues to spread the message on the importance of voting with the “Gotta Be Barack Tee”- not only honoring the president’s re-election efforts, but also reinforcing the message that we have the power to create change this November.

OBEY and Keith Haring present a full look at their collaborative Fall 2012 capsule collection for the Keith Haring Foundation. Inspired by The Pop Shop, Haring’s 1980s storefront, OBEY men’s designer Mike Ternosky created an authentic, vintage aesthetic by coupling the production methods that would have been available to Haring three decades ago with designs that would translate to today’s audience. The resulting collection brings the art and designs of both Haring and Shepard Fairey to the forefront and includes faded graphic tees, outerwear and more. The entire Keith Haring x OBEY 2012 capsule collection will be available soon from Urban Outfitters before hitting additional retailers in July.

Keith Haring and Shepherd Fairey are two artists whose distinct talents have made them masters of the art of visual language. Haring’s work lives on in this new capsule collaboration with Fairey’s OBEY — a project which unites these two icons of pop art and street art. This video preview touches on the motivations and concepts behind the project itself, while also giving a few glimpses of the capsule collection itself. The art-driven project aims to reappropriate some of Haring’s most iconic art via the OBEY clothing medium.

Warriors of Radness P.O.P. Pier T by Anthony Friedkin

Out now is the P.O.P. Pier T, a photo print of the infamous pier shot by Anthony Friedkin.

The Pacific Ocean Park Pier was built in the late 1950s in Santa Monica, California. Built to compete with Disneyland, it drew 20,000 on opening day, July 28, 1958. But by the late 60s attendance plummeted mainly
due to an urban renewal project begun by the city which ended up demolishing buildings in the area and closing streets leading to the park. It finally closed in 1967, fell to ruins, and became a heavily localized surfing break, especially for a bunch of local “Dogtown” skateboarders that would be known as the Z-Boys. Besides the intensity of more surfers than waves at the spot, dilapidated and busted pylons sticking out of the water made
for a dangerous ride. Rare footage of the surfing at the pier can be seen in the 2001 documentary, “Dogtown
and Z-Boys”.

Anthony Friedkin was a young surfer and photographer back then and shot the most brilliant photo of the Pier in its later days. Tony has also accomplished a significant amount of relevant work since. His photographs are included in major museum collections including New York’s Museum of Modern Art and the J. Paul Getty Museum, along with numerous private collections. In 2008 he was included in a historical group show and coinciding book called, “This Side of Paradise” which examines the dynamic relationship between Los Angeles and the art of photography from the 1860s to the present.

The P.O.P. Pier T is available exclusively at select WOR retailers, and at Reserve Online.
