THE REAL KINGS OF NY STICKERS

While looking at throw ups and tags on metal gates, I always noticed on the side structure those little rectangle stickers (mostly yellow or black). They are up to remind store owners that in case of a malfunction of their gates they can call for help. I started to collect them while walking around the 5 boroughs and after 4 years I gather about 50 different ones. If you talking about stickers up in the New York street, their is no “street artists” coming even close to Empire Gates. I have seen them up literally a 100’000 times. They are followed by few other companies quite close. I was sitting on this small collection of stickers for a while when my friend Nardelli from 5 BORO asked me to design a skateboard and a tee for him. Since 5B is probably the most legit skate company in New York, I decided to give away my collection for a board and tee design. I don’t mess usually too much with graphic with photo elements but this was fun. The stuff is coming out September 15th on the 5B website as well as in good skate shop sworldwide.
