ALIFE together with the New York Art Department’s new project welcomes furniture and design company Uhuru on board as they attempt to reconceptualize the notion of graffiti and art onto attainable, private property. Several artist collaborators are further contributing to the mix in the form of New York personalities and institutions; Earsnot, KR, Semen Sperms and bar Max Fish as well as artist Jim Joe. Pieces from the collection will be available for sale here while the microsite can be seen here.

A quote from The Hole gallery founder Kathy Grayson offers a nice and tidy explanation of the project:

This is not the cold customization of Koons making BMWs and Murakami making Louis Vuitton bags, where “marketing art” merges with culture. This is taking something that makes the public private (graffiti) and making it into an object that can be privately owned. It’s a morsel of design and crime: if design is the total control of your environment to make aesthetic decisions and refine your visual environment, crime is the anarchy that fucks that all up.
