Building off momentum surrounding his Nike adidas Shirt (2015) project having gone viral and attracting a cease and desist from Nike, the artist announced a one day event in which a “final stock” of items would be for sale at an undisclosed gallery on Canal Street in NYC. The July 23rd event was titled “World Peace Day”, referencing an interview Shirt did with Highsnobiety that week saying his Nike adidas project bringing the brands together was “what the whole world should be on.” Previously released hoodies and t-shirts were available for sale, as well as a newly designed t-shirt with the words “World Peace Day” around an earth graphic on the back. The address wasn’t made public and attendants had to message the artist personally. For 10 hours Shirt talked to people, sold clothes, touched up painted works on wood, and played music.
