Illustrator and pop artist Keith Vlahakis’ signature lettering style is inspired by a mixture of classic serif looped typography and the fluid daintiness of late nineteenth century Art Nouveau Poster Design.

His pop art projects deal with nostalgia and are influenced by the memories of being a kid in the 90’s, obsessed with rap music, sci-fi movies and video games.

Juggling commercial advertising work and personal projects, Vlahakis uses Instagram to its fullest potential.

#ENDRACISM NOW. We are pushing a new conscious message within streetwear. Something raw, super charged that comments on the times. In January, months ago, we came up with this anti Trump concept called “GLOBAL ENEMY” This Capsule is a raw commentary on the political climate of earth. It was first satire , now it’s real life. Inspired heavily by the music of hip hop legends @publicenemy and @mrchuckd_pe below is a breakdown of the sentiments and thinking behind these revolution pieces – We are revolutionaries through our art. We can change perceptions and insight dialogue through street wear, and comment on the times. @un.being – As a company owned by multi-ethnic groups we've decided to pause our normal operation and shift our attention to the ongoing protests for justice and against racism here in the US and around the globe. The recent event is only the latest example in a long history of racially driven violent injustice, guided by those in power who are currently in charge and actively encouraging more racial division against those deemed "other" foreigners, Blacks Mexicans, Arabs, Chinese etc.. who is next, and where does it stop? We want to use our clothing as a vehicle for expression of mood, aspiration to make a change. We do not want to profit from selling anything related to addressing these issues. All proceeds from sales will be donated to organizations in the National Bail Network* who are working to provide bail assistance to those arrested in protests nationwide. Together we stand against oppression racism and social injustice #FUCKRACISM #fucktrump #fighthepower #nationalbailfund #bailfund #bailassistance #publicenemy #endracism #blacklivesmatter #streetwear #streetculture #revolution #nationalbailnetwork #revolutionary #fightthegoodfight #art #protester #socialactivism #artactivism #artists #posterart #fucksystemicracism #fuckwhitesupremacy #hope #streetwear #protest #protestart @hypebeast @highsnobiety
