BOW3RY reflects the look and feel of B horror film posters of the 80’s, the first wave of punk and hardcore, 70’s porn, and the seedy garbage underbelly of Los Angeles, where sex for cash, dope needles, skateboarders on speed and pawn shop owners all hold the same cultural sway as the mayor. For the anti-everything DIY loving motherfucker, BOW3RY is the uniform. Here are some of the most rad pieces.
