When it comes to showcasing an artist's work on our apparel and decks, it's something we have never done before. We have always kept art concepts "in-house."
At least that's how it has always been... until we saw the artwork of Ken Berman. The steampunk style of his work, combined with the artistic ideas of our own artists seemed to be a perfect match! "Ken's work has been something I've followed on Instagram for almost a year. I've always found his work interesting and when I saw him painting on decks, it kicked off an even deeper interest." Mark Thomas (DF13 co-owner) said.
It turns out that Mr. Berman also had an interest in DF13. Having attended school in the Pittsburgh area, thus having some root here, made this an even better match!
The new Ken Berman "Pop Music" collection focuses on Ken's "Pop Music" piece as the center focus for all of the art concepts. However, DF13 and Mr. Berman have some plans for future releases as well.
All products are licensed from Ken Berman to DF13 for use and every product created has a flare to it that simply catches the eye for any art collector or any Ken Berman art fan.
The collection launches on June 1st, 2018 (tomorrow as of the time of writing this)! It is definitely a must see!
