New Coup Street x Danny Mateo Collaboration

We’re back with another Coup Street x Danny Mateo collaboration. This one is called “Paletero” aka “Ice Cream Man”. It was inspired by a photo I took at one of my local pigeons spots I like to go to. While I was shooting the pigeons, a Paletero walked up with his cart and pulled out a bag of seed and fed the pigeons. I snapped away getting the whole experience documented. When he left I started thinking. Paletero’s are some of the hardest working people out there. They go out every day with their cart, and make a living. It may not be the most glamorous job, but they work hard to provide a better life for themselves and their families. Pigeons are also some of the hardest workers I have ever seen and that’s one of the reasons why we chose to theme our brand after them. For me, feeding pigeons can be therapeutic. After this experience with the Paletero and the pigeons, I had this vision that he does that every day and gets a lot of joy from it. Even though he may not have a lot of money, he still shares with those who have even less. I hit up my boy Danny Mateo and told him my idea. He’s a fan of the Paleteros himself and their hard work ethic. I showed him the photos I took and he came up with what you see here. We will be releasing 60 of these prints. 30 will be on a grey shirt, like you see here, and the other thirty will be on a teal colored shirt. Support your hungry hustlers, and local artists and cop one of these dope “Paletero” t-shirts.
