Upper Playground Release Tees With Usugrow

Upper Playground got a chance to chat with Usugrow recently, and although he has had a busy year of gallery showings (most recently his thematic show in London), he maintains that T-Shirts are just as important as any of his canvas paintings, because they’re accessible to anyone.  And to prove it, he’s releasing a line of Shinganist tees with Upper Playground.  The tee’s follow in his distinct style that incorporates his signature skulls and uses black and white to create stark contrasts.  All five t-shirts are available at Upper Playground’s retail stores, and online at the Upper Playground online store.
