Tryrone Biggums Gets His Own Alife Shirt
A perfect union has just been released between world renown streetwear brand Alife and artist Jesse Edwards. The shirt features a oil painting of Dave Chappelle’s famous character “Tyrone Biggums” the crackhead doing one of his signature habits, scratching parts of his body. This character is right up the ally for Jesse and Alife since they both share the same gritty, and cheeky sense of humor.
Jesse Edwards, an Idaho native, lives in both New York and Seattle. He mainly uses oils on linen, in the style of impressionist artists such as Pierre Auguste Renoir, often depicting controversial topics such as porn and drug use. He also creates ceramic works of objects such as a television or blackberry showing images of Disney characters or nude pictures of women.
