A couple years back, we had a hand in introducing our friend Nobu aka Usugrow into the American art scene through a collaborative, limited, t-shirt and hoody project. Since that time, he’s gone on to do some really amazing things — from t-shirts for Brooklyn Projects and Upper Playground to a joint show with Mike Giant at the much-respected White Walls Gallery in San Francisco. It’s to the point where I can barely get a hold of him these days.
So it was nice to get a package from Nobu that enclosed his recent book, “LOVE HATE FROM JP,” published by Fifty24SF Books. The hardbound book displays some of Usugrow’s greatest art in his signature style.
A nice letter to Ben and I, except for the fact that I have absolutely no clue what it says. Still, cool.
Here are the unique pieces Usugrow contributed to The Hundreds.
