Haculla, a designer streetwear collection, is designed by Tykoon Brand Holding’s owner and creative director Jon Koon, and inspired by the iconic Harif Guzman’s 15 years of provocative street art. Guzman began tagging the streets of New York in the early-2000’s and became recognized for his work soon thereafter, gaining a celebrity following. They have since watched him transition from a street artist to a contemporary painter. His street and contemporary artworks have been exhibited internationally. However, he calls New York home as well as his favorite canvas and inspiration.
Haculla’s first collection is inspired by and references Guzman’s “Dark Ages” characters. The original series is an examination of the old masters in classical art, and within this series, Guzman juxtaposes his signature street art characters with iconic styles often depicted in old master paintings.
