FaZe Clan recently announced it was releasing a line of limited-edition products as part of a collaboration with Japanese artist Takashi Murakami. The collection was exclusively available on the NTWRK app on June 28th.
“When I was a university student, Warhol made paintings in collaboration with Basquiat and it was much talked about. For Warhol, who was past 50, to collaborate with Basquiat, the young superstar, seemed to me as though the former was sucking up to the youth, and I looked on feeling a bit sorry for him,” Murakami said in a press release. “Then, they both passed away. A little over a decade later, the once-incongruous collaborative paintings, which had seemed to feature the generational divide as the sales point, started to look very fresh, like an embodiment of the situation of their time. I must now be older than Warhol then, and I suspect the members of FaZe Clan are younger than Basquiat was.”
The collection is comprised of esports jerseys, mousepads, and other products that feature Murakami’s signature flower pattern. The retail price of the products ranged from $50 to $100.
