MEET THE ARTIST

Meet Stash. Born in Long Island, New York in the late 1960’s he became a pivotal piece to the East Village scene of the early 1980’s for his work in graffiti art . In fact, he first exhibited his canvases alongside pop art pioneers Keith Haring and Jean Michael Basquiat when he was only 17 years-old. Although many of his contemporaries turned to Pop Art, Stash stayed true to the subway, working on trains until 1987.
 
His early work demonstrates a devotion to signature bold outlines and clean shapes. However, by the late 1990’s, Stash had pioneered the use of graphic elements of graffiti on street wear through high-profile collaborations with companies such as Nike and Bathing Ape. The move ensured his work reached a much wider audience which played a key role in the widespread understanding of graffiti. Eventually, this began to lead to its public acceptance.

For his unique collaboration with Alpha Industries, Stash decided to use paint markers on the L-2B D.I.Y. Flight Jacket and L-2B W D.I.Y. Flight Jacket. For the men’s version, he went with a bold color scheme that included shades of blue and red – colors that are also popular in his graffiti work

For the women’s version, he selected some of the same bold colors. However, for the flowers, he added dashes of purple and teal. His loyalty to bold outlines and clean shapes is extremely apparent through these two pieces!

We have different D.I.Y. marker packs available on our website. This allows you to either recreate Stash’s work or apply your own creativity!
