Artist Spotlight: Brian Downey

Brian Downey is the Florida-based artist behind Falcon Bowse—a fashion house specializing in upcycled hats made from repurposed materials. His more traditional fashion line features limited run hats, hand-sewn from deadstock and vintage fabrics from the 60s and 70s, while his parallel creative practice pushes the iconic, everyday symbol of the baseball hat into the art realm. Made from unconventional materials, like deconstructed baseballs, orange peels, fried chicken, retro 3D glasses, his sculptural hats have garnered a dedicated following on social media, where he posts his creations several times per week.
