Niagara x Shepard Fairey Pay Homage To Ron Asheton With New Collaborative Editions

As we celebrate the life of legendary Detroit guitarist Ron Asheton, 1xRUN is proud to present new collaborative editions from one of Asheton's infamous partners in crime Niagara blended with the iconic work of Shepard Fairey.
"Any day is a good day that pays tribute to Ron's contributions. Thank you, Shepard. Ron would bestow onto you, as he would say, "A hearty handshake." - Niagara
"So stick with me on this…The Sex Pistols were the gateway drug for a lot of good things for me(or bad depending who you ask) including my discovery of the Stooges, because the Sex Pistols covered the Stooges song “No Fun”. The Stooges made a lot of my favorite music, so of course I’m a huge fan of their guitarist Ron Asheton. I’ve also been a big fan since the 90’s of the artist Niagara who makes very stylish, pop-noir paintings with a dark sense of humor and sly wit. What I did not know until maybe 15 years ago, is that Ron Asheton and Niagara, both hailing from Detroit, were romantically and musically entangled! They played together in Destroy All Monsters and Dark Carnival…both great post-Stooges bands. I’ve become friends with Niagara, so we decided to collaborate by both making Ron and Niagara portrait art, which we’d then hand over to the other to enhance/destroy as they saw fit. Today is Ron’s birthday, so we thought we’d share a tease of the print collaborations to come. Bonnie and Clyde were lightweights… Niagara and Ron... the real deal!" - Shepard Fairey
