Product Details
Upper Playground has released a line of new high-quality Reggae and Dancehall inspired t-shirts designed by the artist Grotesk.

As evidenced by his artistic style, Grotesk became heavily influenced by Reggae and Dancehall music when he was a late teen in Geneva, Switzerland; and while looking through his friend's record collections of this genre, discovered the album artwork of Wilfred Limonious. Wilfred's work has graced the covers of countless albums and as Grotesk puts it, "symbolizes to Dancehall what the Ultimate Breaks & Beats covers are for Hip Hop." More recently, while tracking down Reggae albums in Brooklyn, Grotesk found the "Stalag 17-18 and 19" collection that Wilfred designed, and immediately decided to create a collection of graphics in posthumous respect to his body of work. The result are these t-shirts, made as a visual souvenir by Grotesk about the music and art that he grew up on.
