Converse X Brain Dead
Brain Dead is formed by a creative duo who stemmed from underground subcultures and their unique take on art and design becomes prevalent in this collaboration with Converse where they redesign the classic Chuck 70.
Prints, prints, prints! Brain Dead took interest in the 80’s archived prints from Converse Converse — the Camouflage print in 1983, and Glow-In-The-Dark Animal Prints in 1988 — and had their final collaged masterpiece asymmetrically screen-printed on the canvas.
Remember how we used to doodle and customise our own Chucks with markers and paints? “To see and be seen as far as the eye can see. Who Controls the Control Men. The same elsewhere.” That’s a quote Brain Dead resonates with, and what better way to display it than having it printed on the foxing tape?
