Kendrick Daye is an artist like no other. He creates bright, timeless pieces that exude aesthetic originality. The artist has now transformed some of his art pieces into a new medium for fans and art lovers to enjoy and admire his work.

Daye’s latest venture is a brand called Wearable Art by Kendrick Daye, which features apparel based on a few of his favorite art creations over the years.

Yes, art literally on your back!

His first release from Wearable Art is the Designer Pop piece which features Daye’s Versonce’ piece on the front of the shirt and his Jayvenchy piece on the back. 

From the artist: “So this Versonce + Jayvenchy, designer POP—make them touch iconic. It’s dressed to impress the icon upon you. That’s what stardom is…that’s what this is. This is the word manifest. Know thy selfie, you don’t know it until you wear it.”

Designer Pop, along with several other art pieces, is available for purchase on Kendrick Daye’s website.

Valentine’s Day is approaching, and love is most definitely in the air. One of Atlanta’s hottest urban brands, Steez Fiendz, has caught the love bug with their upcoming seasonal collection release, called The 2015 SpreadLove Collection. 

With the collection, inspired by Valentine’s Day and Black History Month, the brand aims to create a “clear cut collaborative between the two as well as mixing the old (designs) with the new,” Ray Anderson and Erick Gaylord, the creators of Steez Fiendz, said. 

The brand is teaming up with City of Ink to provide an exclusive showcase for the new collection at a pop-up event on February 7. The night will include the collection’s release, art displays, good food, live tattoos, and tunes by NOAHXZARK.

“We want people to feel a sense of enjoyment when they see the new collection,” the creators said. “It has been produced in exclusive numbers therefore we want you to feel special when you make your purchase. As if it were a collectors item or an original piece of art!”

The idea of SpreadLove came from Ray and Erick wanting to create an event for people amongst the indie scene to come, vibe, spread love, and enjoy each other as the brand continues to grow. 

Check out the event flyer below, and definitely come out to support these positive guys!

[Behind The Seams] Horus Brand Clothing

[Behind The Seams] Horus Brand Clothing

DSC_2289When you think of Egypt, you probably think of gold and Cleopatra. You are correct in thinking of those things, but Horus Brand Clothing has brought an Egyptian flare to modern times. The symbol that represents the brand is the eye of Horus. This symbol represents health, power, and protection; Horus was the god of the sky and ruler of ancient Egypt.

This brand wants to empower the youth of today through the clothes that they wear. When wearing this line of clothing, the customer should feel like keeping their “mind and body healthy” while being “ambitious and influential to those around you.”

Horus Brand Clothing has a great selection of items for both the ladies and the gentlemen. There are hoodies, t-shirts, necklaces, long sleeved shirts, beanies, and even bucket hats available.

DSC_2301The one item that really caught my eye was the “Dwayne Wayne” flip-top shades. If you don’t have an idea what these look like, just think back to any episode of A Different World. Dwayne was always trying to get a good look at Whitley by flipping up his glasses. The glasses are so fun and could start many interesting conversations. These shades are not an item that you will see any person wearing on the streets.

Make sure you visit the website to order your first item of Horus Brand Clothing.
