Stussy x Basil Wolverton


During his time at MAD Magazine in the ‘golden age of comics’, Basil Wolverton was one of the most highly respected illustrators in his field – the grotesque and macabre figures that he depicted are an instantly recognisable oeuvre; one that Stussy licenced a number of for t-shirt prints as part of their Holiday Collection.


Last summer the Gladstone Gallery in New York exhibited a retrospective of his work – the first time any of his art had been shown in a gallery setting. Wolverton passed away in 1978, but Stussy have conducted an interview with his son Monte, which can be read here along with examples of his extraordinary pieces.
