A household name in the graffiti world, Eric Haze‘s replete resumé speaks for itself. Having spent the earlier part of his career honing his skills on the New York streets, the seminal artist went on to design cover art for some of hip-hop’s most iconic — Public Enemy EPMD, Beastie Boys and LL Cool J — before anchoring his talent in the realm of design. While Haze’s affinity for Asian streetwear culture has been prominent since the unveiling of the Haze Brand store in Tokyo, the artist recently furthered his passion by collaborating with Hong Kong’s Fingercroxx imprint. Teaming up with the brand’s mother group I.T, the two deliver a directional collection — consisting of jackets, tees, sweatpants, denim jeans, hats and skate decks – for Summer 2013 nodding at both staples’ recognizable motifs. Here, Haze share with us the idea behind the collaboration, the expansion of his art outside of the states, and how graffiti has lead to a number of identities outside of the immediate street art compass. We also get a glimpse at Haze’s live mural performance, in addition to an installation shout-out for HYPEBEAST.
