Curtis Kulig

the ‘love me’ artist takes us on a manhattan tour!

by liza darwin

Curtis Kulig knows New York. He might originally be from North Dakota, but this artist has spent the last several years making his mark–both figuratively and literally– all around Manhattan. Chances are you're already familiar with his instantly-recognizable “Love Me” tag, which he's splashed across everything from skateboards to jackets to giant billboards (he's also the creative mastermind behind the new DKNY logo!). While you've probably seen his work, we're betting you're not quite as familiar with Kulig's downtown hotspots. He'll reveal all his favorite New York places later today on NYLON TV, so stay tuned for that. But first, head behind the scenes of his NYLON TV and DKNY Jeans shoot for a glimpse of Kulig as he works in the studio, chills outside with a popsicle…and obviously looks good doing it. Check out a sneak peek below, and head over to to get the clothes for the dude in your life (or, let's be honest, yourself).
