Worked on in collaboration with Case Studyo, the full look reveals just how much thought went into the 48cm-tall figure. Constructed with individual blocks of wood, the collectible is a ode to the NYC Lo-Life movement, sporting a hand-painted version of Ralph Lauren POLO’s iconic 1992 Olympic popover jacket. If you look closer, a lot of details begin to pop out, as subtle traits like the brass-metal teeth, screen-printed box, and back collar elevate this figure into the realm of collectible art.
Those that copped Grotesk’s 2014 Snow Beach sculpture are sure to love this follow-up piece that’s dedicated to the iconic American label. Act fast as there are only 24 examples made (four of which are artist proofs). Those interested can head over to Case Studyo’s web store where they can purchase the signed-and-numbed Stadium 1992 sculpture.

We’re pleased to announce our latest release the “STADIUM 1992” wood sculpture by @groteskito Swiss-born, Brooklyn-based Kimou “Grotesk” Meyer always takes an interesting angle when it comes to design and pop culture nostalgia. For his 18.5”/48cm. Stadium 1992 wood collectible sculpture Grotesk sources the late 1980s and early ’90s, as well as the Lo Life movement, which gave birth to what we know as modern streetwear. Like his 2014 Snow Beach sculpture, Grotesk captures that unique POLO look, a blend of street culture and comic style that has been a signature of his work for decades. Edition of 20 in a wooden “Ralf Grotesk” box to encase Stadium 1992 work, This is part throwback, part NYC and in many ways a bit of Geneva too.
