Eddie Martinez has recently teamed up with AllRightsReserved to release a new edition based on one of the reoccurring motifs in his paintings. Produced in an edition of 100, Blockhead Lamp is handcrafted from stainglass, comes signed and numbered, and mirrors the skull-like imagery that often appears in the Brooklyn-based artist’s work. Martinez further explains – “I started drawing this blockhead form in 2005. In retrospect I can see they were a direct response to my obsession with Guston, particularly his masonry work. I have a distinct memory of […]

Some of the Japanese artist’s signature motifs – his smiling flowers and kaikai kiki characters – are contrasted nicely against the classic green bottles from the French mineral water brand. Murakami further explains – “When PERRIER® first approached me, I felt extremely lucky to have the opportunity to collaborate with this sparkling water brand with such a long history. It held many positive associations for me – for example, […]

The edition, which will come in two versions – gray & blue, was adapted from a drawing of his son form last year. He further explains – “The drawing was inspired by my son’s radiance– that special radiance found in small children that glows with love and joy, and can part the clouds in the sky. Leonard Cohen wrote that ‘as our eyes grow accustomed to sight they armor […]

Unfortunately, the looting that happened in Los Angeles did not leave artwork unscathed in certain locations. The iconic Haroshi (featured) middle finger sculpture that stood as the centerpiece at the HUF store since 2015 was damaged in the chaos of that weekend. The piece created from skateboard decks, as is the usual practice by the Japanese artist, has always stood as symbol of “fuck you” – a FU to “oppressors, to injustice, to violence, to racism, to authority, to inequality, and to anyone or anything working […]
