Skrapper is... the brainchild of famed US contemporary artist, William Quigley. Skrapper started in 1999 as a socially consciousness brand hosting art, fashion and music events supporting a variety of charitable causes. The first being equality. As the New York / LA contemporary art world grew internationally, Quigley used Skrapper as a billboard to showcase art, build a community and share its philosophy about culture to a wider audience. Each piece is a reinvention from an original artwork transforming his restless creativity into a wearable canvas that blur the lines of Art + Fashion.

Every month SKRAPPER will release a Limited Edition Quigley Print and Tshirt. Stay up to date. To Share Please follow us here. @skrapper_style  @skrapper_Style

Our mission is to collaborate and license partnerships with other artists, athletes, brands, influencers, musicians and foundations focused on fostering awareness for the friends and charities the brand relentlessly supports.



Based on his boxer paintings from the late 90s Skrapper was conceived by Quigley and close friend, musician Pete Francis founder of the band Dispatch.  Francis started Skrapper Records in 2000 asking Quigley to design Dispatch's "Who we Living for" the first of several albums they worked on together. He used the title from a 10 ft painting made days after being in the midst of the April 29, 1992 Rodney King Riots. Working with graphic artist Jeremy Miller, JBird, they created a website, clothing, and epic artistic video stage shows with "Mr. Wiggles, a character Francis named Quigley, who painted or danced on stage, bringing a fresh new fun act to the bands underground viral uprising. Dispatch rose from playing opening acts to selling out venues like Irving Plaza, Sommerville, and Roseland. In 2004 110,000 fans surprisingly showed up for their supposed final concert at Boston's Hatch Shell. Three years later Pete Francis built a band from his Middlebury dorm room to the first US indie band to sell out Madison Square Garden 7x in 2007 + 2015 too touring sold out stadiums internationally. Currently Skrapper is enthusiasticly again promoting Francis' fast growing new music venture The Dragon Crest Collective.

Since 1999 Skrapper has done 9 runway shows during NY & LA Fashion Week. The line first premiered at the infamous Limelight in NYC and Pantages Theater in Los Angeles. On Quigley's birthday April 29, 1999 he debuted an art show with a collection of hand painted skirts and tshirts for models and cocktail servers to wear during the exhibit. Before the opening Quigley introduced beverage sponsors Grey Goose Vodka owner Sydney Frank to Arne Zimmerman of Red Bull, mixing the random concoction as a cocktail for the first time. Skrapper continued to host Grey Goose/Red Bull events at galleries, restaurants and night clubs in NY until 2005. In 2005 partnered with Uncle Funky's Jeff Gaites & Stoked's Eric Weinrib coming up with the name Boarding for Breast Cancer organizing an event for Sony's film Lords of Dogtown at Milk Studios curating 107 artists, actors and musicians to paint on skateboards provided by Tony Alva. In 2009 Skrapper collabed with Vinum Cellars bottling 1600 limited reserves of Skrapper CabFranc released at The NY RedBull Space Skrapper Fashion Show. The latest fashion shows were in East Hampton 2015 utilizing Quigley's Schenck Fuel garage studio as a dressing room while having a combination Art Opening / Runway show and a month later one of the first to run it's line a top the NY Highline during NY Fashion Week.

Graphic artist Seth Lamburn started working with Quigley in n 2012. Lamburn's talents and long experience working with over 30 apparel brands have been vital in transforming the original paintings into apparel and products that represnt the artists expressionistic style while maintaining its integrity.

In April 2020 his father, William Quigley passed. Almost immediately WAX founder William E. Quigley from Oakland, CA reached out randomly wanting to discuss minting a series of NFTs.

"Trying to make a good abstract painting is really difficult. I pour everything into it, scribbling ferociously with pencil, crayons, spray paint, wiping it with rags, throwing paint at it etc. This process allows me to make better portraits. I see them as all conceptual... Helps me understand Picasso and Matisse better, and why they were so darn good. There’s so many good artists out there. I think we have to be ambassadors for the good each other and feel very blessed to be able to create everyday and have so many friends and people that actually like and want to support it.”
