He passion was born by spray painting subway cars at age 13. Today, his works are held in the permanent collections of the Brooklyn Museum, the Boca Raton Museum of Art, the New Orleans Museum of Art, and the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam and many more exhibits worldwide.
This latest venture with Crash really delivers. We fully appreciate wearable art, but we’re also feeling playable art in the form of this Crash Mini Basketball. Originally these were extremely limited to just 25 pieces, but we just got word that they are popping out another 100 units. Get yours now if you can and if not, that’s the way the ball bounces.
