Erik Brunetti (born 1967)
is an American artist and designer, best known for his creation of the brand FUCT. He is credited as one of the creators of subversive street wear, a style of designing stemming from the Situationist Movement - which involves subtly changing, re-appropriating or subverting various pop culture themes and icons. Brunetti took the transformative ideals of the Situationists of the 60's and applied those aesthetics to the society of today. Brunetti created FUCT in 1990, during this period the term "street wear" did not exist. FUCT was amongst the pioneers of this new movement, along with the likes of Shawn Stussy, Eric Haze, Keith Harring's Popshop and Hysteric Glamour, of Japan. -from SXH

Drawing it’s roots in early skate-boarding and graffiti culture as well as punk-rock music, FUCT has maintained a steady cult following over the years. The brand has also attracted artists and musicians such as Keith Richards, Julian Schnabel, Larry Clark and members of thrash metal band Slayer. -from WKP
