Israeli-born Arnie Glesper has obsessed over street art since he was a young boy. He says, 'It is a powerful way for the oppressed to speak and it can be truly captivating.' After seeing graffiti's power in his home country, Arnie went on to travel Europe and then moved to New York. Through all his travels the passionate messaging and symbology behind graffiti inspired his study of the subject and life-long commitment to uncovering the bigger stories behind the art.
Arnie was kind enough to create the following collection inspired by his own and some of his favorite graffiti from around the world. 'Each piece has its own story but its interpretation, like any art, is open to each observer. One day I hope to start a foundation to teach art and give supplies to the less fortunate around the world because it is such a powerful way for them to get their voices heard.'
This collection will be his first foray into the apparel world and if successful Arnie will be starting his own line to support his foundation.
