NEVER $AY DIE: Terry Urban x F.T.W.S.

Never $ay Die is an annual collection collaboration between fashion house F.T.W.S. and artist Terry Urban. The aesthetics/garments pay homage to music subculture and artists who’ve passed leaving legacies through sonic mediums. Artists will not survive, but art will…we’ll Never $ay Die.

Urban's style is most influenced by Abstract expressionism and Neo-expressionism, where he is not interested in an accurate execution of his subjects, but rather in exploring the possibilities of abstraction. In his early years, Urban was interested in art and began to paint graffiti. However, his music career as a DJ began to flourish and his painting took a back seat. Musically, Urban's DJ career has spanned over a decade but he was looking for a more creative outlet in life. In 2015, with advice from a close friend, Urban began to paint once again. Over the past years, Urban has completely immersed himself into his work and has exhibited his paintings in many solo shows.
