Hieroglyphics Announce Release Parties, Paintings and Clothing Collaborations
The Legendary Hiero Crew Releases Collaborative Toy, Jacket, And Canvas, Celebrates With Release Parties
(November 4, 2010 - Brooklyn, NY)
The legendary Bay Area hip-hop crew Hieroglyphics are now part of a select group of people who can say they have their very own action figure. Having teamed up with GOLDCOIN for a project called The Hieroglyphics x GOLDCOIN Capsule Collection, fans will have access to Hiero inspired clothing and accessories commemorating their legacy. To celebrate the first of many releases from the collaboration, the 7" vinyl action figure, appropriately named Hieroman, a party is being thrown in San Francisco on November 5th, at which every item from the partnership will be on display. Paired with a live DJ spinning Hiero classics and free entry, it's an event not to be missed.
For fans of Hiero and art-collectors alike, W.A.I.L. has announced a limited series of Hieroglyphics-inspired paintings that are now available for reservation. Restricted to 300 canvases, all are signed by the entire crew and come with a certificate of authenticity. Those wanting to go even further can reserve one of the twenty paintings from "The Monument Series" which, instead of the standard 40" x 40" size, is a massive 60" x 60". As these pieces are so limited, it is advised to act quickly before they become unavailable.
The final of the three recent collaborations with Hiero comes from Akomplice, the Colorado-based clothing company. Putting a spin on their already popular Hooded Varsity jacket, the company has embossed the silhouette with both the Akomplice and Hiero logos. To take the project to the next level, Hiero has recorded an original track that is only available through purchase of the jacket. Fuzion's retail space in Santa Barbara will host the product's live release, for which Akomplice and members of Hiero will be present.
