About Keith Forever

A few people have asked about the Keith Forever mural that arrived on First Avenue at Second Street late last week.

Created by Eric Haze, the mural is part of an ongoing celebration of the life and legacy of Keith Hufnagel, the skateboarding icon and founder of the streetwear company Huf Worldwide

Hufnagel died last September of brain cancer. He was 46. 

He was a native New Yorker, and grew up in Stuy Town-Peter Cooper Village ... he moved to San Francisio in the early 1990s, where he would later launch his business.

This clip from Huf's Instagram account provides some aerial views of the tribute...
