Multifaceted artist STASH unveils his latest venture in the UK with his upcoming ‘Exhibit A’ exhibition. Unfolding decades of his versatile art style, driven through a conceptual lens that continues to push creative boundaries to the present day. Showcasing a rich chronology of his artwork, stemming from his early involvement in the New York Graffiti movements to his burgeoning influence on the fashion scene, this exhibition takes you on a journey on through some of his most revered pieces to date.
Taking place at London’s very own contemporary StolenSpace gallery between 26th November – 3rd December 2022, Exhibit A showcases the sheer diversity and impact of Josh Franklin, known as Stash, through his career as an artist across many mediums. His body of work lays a lasting groundwork for how art and culture have gone on to interact with products and industry. Put forth by creativity ignited by his involvement in New York City’s graffiti movement, Stash’s energy and prowess led him around the world; unlocking new landscapes, bridging gaps, and setting the table for modern commercialisation of culture.
Deep-rooted friendship is felt in the innocence and explorative nature of early projects and ideas, from sending an international shockwave through what became to be ‘streetwear culture’ with his tee shirt designs, to being the first non-athlete to collaborate with Nike on a sneaker. Stash has been a trailblazer his entire life, pushing the envelope forward and providing visual maintenance to the world around him.
To celebrate STASH’s upcoming ‘Exhibit A’ art show in London, Footpatrol in association with Gimme5 and Thomas Rampino partners with the multi-faceted artist on a limited-edition t-shirt commemorating STASH’s creative journey and vision throughout the years.
Arriving in a cotton construction, the t-shirt features a front print of the EXHIBIT A graphic with STASH branding hallmarking the chest in the STASH blue hue. Further co-labelling adorns the back (at the neck) cementing the partnership. Sizes for the ‘Exhibit A’ T-Shirt range from M – XXL, priced at £45.
Footpatrol also teams up with STASH to produce a one-of-a-kind’ Gasmask t-shirt to commemorate our 20th-year anniversary. The design features the Footpatrol Gasmask graphic presented in a gradient fade, blended with STASH’s iconic FAT CAP pattern graphic overlay on top. Additional ’20th Anniversary’ labelling is added on the left sleeve and STASH’s tag is on the back neck.
Sizes for the Gasmask T-Shirt range from S – XXL, also priced at £45. A tote bag also comes as a gift with every purchase with a poster and pin badge that will also be available at the exhibition event.
Coinciding with Exhibit A, Footpatrol will also be hosting an in-store signing with STASH for the launch of his new book SUBBLUEMINAL, which encapsulates his vision, journey, and projects throughout this career. This event will be taking place on the 24th of November 2022 at 80 Berwick St, Soho, London. The book ‘SUBBLUEMINAL’ will be also available in-store and online at the Footpatrol website, priced at £50.
Every book will come complete with a bookmark and stylish tote bag as a gift with every purchase, with Stash’s South Paw Sculpture vinyl toy also available to buy in-store at Footpatrol, priced at £80.
This collaboration also includes a ‘SUBBLUEMINAL’ hoodie which further commemorates this one-of-one event. Chartered in a Dark Navy 330gm cotton/polyester blend 3-end fleece construction, this hoodie arrives with embroidered STASH labelling with printed SUBBLUEMINAL branding underneath and will be launching in-store and over on the Footpatrol Launches App, priced £85.
