Some of this audience might be familiar with Jesse Edwards and, to a greater extent, Erik Brunetti. The FUCT founder has, by some accounts, done more for the streetwear industry than the majority of artists who claim the same thing. Teaming up with renowned realist painter Jesse Edwards, the pair was blessed with a show at none other than Vito Schnabel’s Gallery in New York. Like the canon of Japanese contemporary wear that informs FUCT/SSDD, Brunetti and Edwards united to address modern notions of American identity using “Americana” aesthetics. This includes purposefully ironic pop culture branding irons and overtly sexual paintings framed in television sets (crafted from ceramic by Edwards). With the exhibition having wrapped up just last week, enjoy a recap of the show here.
