In town for his new collaboration with Fingercroxx, Eric Haze gave a quick demonstration of what originally made him famous!
At an in-store event in Causeway Bay, Eric went about putting up his signature tag – HAZE, followed by a background in the thick and dripping lettering that his pieces often feature.
The tag alone is a rich lesson in the art of graffiti. It exemplifies the elegance and style that allowed him to rise to the top of New York’s graffiti world in the 1980’s.
Check out the video below and watch how he puts it all together! Pay close attention to the major stylistic points such as the star, the curl on the end of the letter ‘e’, the quotes, the halo, the arrow, and the cloud.
The HAZE x Fingercroxx (FGXX) collection consists of shirts, hats, and shorts. It’s a men’s collection, but actress Dada Chan was on hand to testify that girls can wear it too!
HAZE never forgot his roots. After the live painting demonstration he paused to place his tag in someone’s ‘black book’.
