FUCT: 20 Years of Erik Brunetti
 

Concisely recapping 20 years of Erik Brunetti’s  involvement with FUCT is difficult; the artist and graffiti writer  founded the label in 1990 and has since attracted many people with  re-interpreted cultural themes and iconography and above all else a  strong opinion. Filmmaker David Gallardo met with Brunetti on several  occasions in around the unveiling of his retrospective show at Los Angeles’ Union.  In doing so, Brunetti speaks about adhering to the principles that  caused him to start the brand, staying relevant, and why is he is not  overly eager to please consumers with his designs, but rather aims to  educate them. The LA-based label maintains an intelligent and fresh  perspective today thanks to Brunetti’s vision.
