Media artist Katsu has deep roots in the graffiti community in New York, and his works integrate public art, technology and hacker culture. Also, a pioneer of drone painting, the artist's work has recently moved from the streets to the digital realm, along with artificial intelligence creating portraiture using government criminal data sets.

To further expose Katsu's aesthetic, NYC streetwear heavyweight ALIFE has teamed up with the artist on a capsule of apparel dubbed "The Climate," as the collab focuses on three key artistic tool sets used within Katsu’s practice within NYC, and resonate with today's art/design/poly atmosphere.

The three key artistic elements consist of an anti Swastika design that links the graffiti and punk narratives that perfectly fit with today's political climate, a single stroke skull; a tool of efficiency and branding for graffiti identity, and drone painting; an examination of autonomous art making and vandalism.

With Katsu's work featured on tees and hoodies, the collaborative range will debut at ALIFE's NYC flagship on Thursday, August 23, and online.

Prices are listed at $42 USD for the tees and $138 USD for the hoodies. Additionally, limited edition signed posters will retail in store for $199 USD.

Up next, Hubble Studio pays homage to Margiela’s Tabi boot with MoMA-inspired tees.
