Facts about Connecticut:
It’s illegal to cross the street walking on your hands in Hartford.
Stamford is home to the WWF (World Wrestling Federation).
PEZ® Candy is manufactured in Orange.
From what I’ve gathered, Connecticut is pro-candy eating wrestlers but anti-acrobatics. (Sorry handwalkers, can’t win ‘em all, right?) However, Connecticut’s city of New Haven (birthplace of American hamburgers and lollipops!) has another brilliant star to add to its roster as hometown of the legendary street artist Sket One. His insane urban graphics literally explode with shocking colors and wild characters. Although nowadays he calls Los Angeles home, his work can be seen across the nation on skateboards, vinyl toys, and as an influence in current graffiti from his heavyweight heydays of the 90’s street art scene.
Wheatpaste is completely stoked to be working with Sket. In fact, we’re so stoked that we decided to ask him to make an exclusive deck of playing cards for us to include with every order on Wheatpaste.com. I have to admit I already snagged a pack and have totally killed it at my weekly Go Fish party since then. We recommend that you play with your art (not your food!) and enjoy! Pop culture never looked so good.
