Doubleday & Cartwright: 50 Artists/50 Moments in the Life Of Michael Jordan

Juxtapoz // Thursday, March 21, 2013
This past NBA All-Star Weekend in Houston at the Museum of Fine Art Houston, creative agency Doubleday & Cartwright of Brooklyn (featuring one of our favorites in Grotesk) worked with Nike on a special project that had 50 artists interpret 50 great moments from the life and career of Michael Jordan. Jordan was celebrating his 50 birthday right around the All-Star weekend, and seeing that he represents the absolute height of basketball greatness, D&C had some great artists on board... including Jason Jagel, Lola Dupre, Aldous Massie, Grotesk, Sophia Chang and others contribute.

We have been anticipating this release for over a month now. June 2009 cover artist, Grotesk, has teamed up with the limited-editioned sculpture studio, Case Studyo, to release 6ft-6in, a lamp made in ode to the legend that was #23. The piece releases today, January 25, and will be made in an edition of, you guessed it, 23. To promote 6ft-6in, Grotesk and design agency, Doubleday & Cartwright, made an animated story about the lamp that lost its way.

Grotesk x Upper Playground Barack Obama Print

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, August 13, 2008
Swiss graphic artist and Brooklyn resident Grotesk has partnered with Upper Playground to produce this exclusive Barack Obama print. In the last decade Grotesk has developed a passion for folk art, street photography, hand-painted signs, vintage sport graphics, old school hip-hop music, and urban anthropology. Grotesk’s Barack Obama poster is part of an ongoing series from Upper Playground of artist collaborations in support of Barack Obama's presidential campaign. Upper Playground has endorsed Obama's campaign by creating posters featuring artwork from The Date Farmers, Munk One, Ron English, Alex Pardee, Morning Breath, Mac, Sam Flores and Mear One, in addition to printing T-shirts with Shepard Fairey's Obama graphics to help support the campaign. There were 200 prints made that are signed and numbered, but only 30 prints will be available for sale and each poster retails for $200. The limited-edition 18" x 24" print is available exclusively online at upperplaygroundstore.com. All proceeds from the sales of the poster will go directly to creating more campaign t-shirts, posters, and stickers by other artists in support of Obama's bid for President.
