fourofour v.2 release

fourofour v.2 release

Unveiling a new fourofour design and mural by a collective member and artist George F. Baker III. You’re sure to recognize George’s work from his popular illustrations of Killer Mike to his mural on the Square Stacks in Cabbagetown. You may even recall George’s earlier collaboration with us. 

As a collective member George has shared his time and talents with us by creating this original design. The mural painted by George is located in our new studio and fourofour storefront. We’re so grateful that George offered this idea and was willing to create this special work for us. The mural has added personality to the space and makes it feel like our home.

 

 

In addition to the dope mural from George, we’ve also collaborated to launch a new shirt with the new fourofour v2 illustration. We’ve made a conscious decision to offer this shirt in a more eco-friendly material that is made from organic cotton and recycled poly rPET blend. This makes the fabric more durable and heavyweight. Each shirt saves at least four plastic bottles from ending up in a landfill, or worse. It’s the perfect choice for someone looking for casual, yet sustainable apparel. Going forward we will be incorporating sustainable products whenever possible.

 

 

Again, a big thank you to George and his generosity painting the fourofour mural. Every purchase directly benefits the artist and our community-oriented events.

Every photograph he takes poetically tells a different story yet each resembles humanity at its core. 

Keith explained, “I want to show everyday life and show the small things that make us who we are. Humanity, is really what I’m trying to show,” he explained, “especially in today's world… Everything is post, snap, repost, retweet, …we lose the essence of what really makes us, us. I want to show the range of everything, the happiness, sadness, the frustration. I want people to feel… to relate.”
