Hyaena gallery is helping our favorite artist & mischief maker create his new art T-shirt design: FYKS. This T-shirt will only be available on this forum for the 30 day campaign period...and never produced again at any time. This is a conceptual art piece - an experiment in meta. The ironic action of obtaining the FYKS T-shirt through Kickstarter is what we consider the real art, the actual T-shirt is the unfortunate byproduct that you will have to wear. The artist will sign the T-shirts upon request, making the artwork suitable for framing. If worn or displayed as intended, the piece will open dialog about the vocal criticism some people have towards crowdfunding, along with the modern necessity of a platform like Kickstarter to help artists bring their projects to fruition.

B.S. is an outsider/street artist who has been slowly making his presence known in various underground art circles since 2006. Inspired by absurdity, his work is often a celebration of ironic humor. He chooses to look at the world with a satirical eye aimed towards its lowest brow. He is based in Los Angeles and represented by Hyaena Gallery.

The use of any copyrighted/trademarked logos in this art experiment should be covered by fair use laws as parody with perceived social commentary and/or criticism.

Risks and challenges

There are minimal risks/challenges associated with this project. We will be printing the T-shirts within a few days of the campaign's end and shipping everything out within 2 weeks. We are working with a local printing company with whom we have an established relationship. The minimum order we need to reach is 20 T-shirts.
