About Graffid – Since 2020

ROOTS IN REBELLION

The first brush with street art for David Gunderson and Jeroen van der Bos was through the enigmatic work of Banksy, an encounter that would forever change their lives. From Banksy, their journey led them to the iconic Shepard Fairey, the genius behind OBEY, and further to street art legends like Stussy, Black Le rat, AXEL VOID, and Dutch maestro KBTR. As surfing waves and skating streets became a part of their daily grind, the vibrant world of graffiti culture unfurled before them. From covert sketches in notebooks to painting walls with audacity, their passion for the art form grew boundlessly.

GRAFFID’S GENESIS

Graffid began as a canvas for David and Jeroen’s artistic impulses – first as an informational website shedding light on graffiti’s nuances. With over 5,000 monthly visitors diving deep into topics like finding the perfect graffiti tag name or exploring 100+ graffiti alphabets, Graffid became a beacon for street art aficionados. As the duo’s aspirations evolved, so did Graffid, metamorphosing into a streetwear brand, with every piece echoing the streets’ raw energy and art’s profound ethos.

ART MEETS STREETWEAR

Driven by the mantra ‘Make Art, Not War,’ Graffid’s inaugural clothing line resonates with the spirits of Banksy’s flower thrower, Keith Haring’s kinetic figures, and the contemporary verve of pop art. Each garment, a canvas. Each design, a statement. Collaborating with Champion, Graffid ensures that while the designs scream rebellion, the quality whispers luxury.

CORE VALUES

At the heart of Graffid lie three pillars:

  • Creativity: Celebrating art in its rawest, most unfiltered form.
  • Rebellion: Challenging norms, breaking boundaries, and rewriting rules.
  • Quality: Ensuring every piece of apparel meets the highest standards, akin to the art it represents.

EXPANDING HORIZONS

While the clothing line is Graffid’s latest endeavor, the journey is only beginning. With plans to share their rich content across diverse social media channels and aspirations to collaborate with street artists and designers, Graffid aims to be the voice of the streets, for the streets.
