Actor/DJ Balthazar Getty recently unveiled his new single “Balt Getty is WACK” and MONK PUNK retail collection at an East LA style block party held on Thursday, June 13 in West Hollywood. The event paid homage to the Los Angeles Latin experience, spotlighting the food, art and even “rolling art” by the Los Maniacos lowrider car club.
A passion project that has been two years in the making, the Los Angeles made MONK PUNK collection is now available at Getty’s new boutique and creative hub, a former Radio Shack on Fairfax Avenue. The space also houses a podcast studio and Getty’s music label PurpleHaus.
The unisex lifestyle brand MONK PUNK features tees, hoodies, sweatpants and totes, is inspired by the artist’s hip-hop music and art and features styles, incorporating his personal drawings, which are also on display throughout the space.
Celebrities David Arquette, Gary Baseman, Rebecca Gayheart, Soleil Moon Frye, Gregory Siff, and others came out in support.
Guests enjoyed Wes Avila’s Guerilla Taco, tasty libations by Gem and Bolt Mezcal, Border X Mexican Beer, custom airbrushing by LA graffiti artist Fernando Valdez aka “Menso One,” and lowriders by legendary Los Angeles Car Club Los Maniacos.
