Quiet Life x Cleon Peterson

We are super excited to announce the launch of the new Quiet Life x Cleon Peterson artist collection. Using Cleon Petersons outstanding artwork, Quiet Life will be releasing a capsule consisting of pocket t's with matching bucket hats & 5 panel caps, printed t shirts, crew sweats pullover hood & zip hood. This will be a limited release this friday 12th July.
Cleon Peterson grew up as a skateboarding “ave rat” (avenue rat) in Seattle. His notoriously liberal upbringing is examined in the work of his art photographer brother Leigh Ledare, in whose pictures Cleon himself often appears. 
Cleon cites a decade of drug addiction, and the anti-lifestyle that accompanied it, as first-hand experience of cruelty and indulgence. Artistic influences include Leon Golub, Paul McCarthy, and Mike Kelly. Cleon uses acrylics and spray paint (“it provides a flat finish”) to create his works on paper mounted on board.
By day Cleon is associate creative director at Shepard Fairey studios. He has three young children: Aubrey, Colette and Huxley. Aged 39 he lives in the mountains above Pasedena with his family.
