At JLEW, we’re lucky to have some incredible athletes and artisans in our corner, and we’re thrilled to add street artist WhIsBe to our list of collaborators. We unveiled our printed WhIsBe bags, which feature WhIsBe’s Sweet Sensation lips print, at our launch party.

WhIsBe is a New York City-based artist whose work has been making streets across the United States and Europe more beautiful since 2011. He is known for producing social commentary by placing innocuous imagery within a provocative context, such as his work featuring Ronald McDonald as a totalitarian dictator. He challenges viewers to think critically about the influence of corporations in today’s world by putting his own spin on mass culture, as seen in his Vandal Gummy series, now on display at the New Museum.
