Here is the first public look at the new print by Case Maclaim which he made especially to aid the programs in Haiti and Braddock, Pennsylvania for Heliotrope Prints. The limited run print will be released this week, April 6th at a pop up show opening in Manhattan and we hope you can come.

Street Artist Swoon asked BSA to curate this special Spring 2017 edition of prints and we chose Case as one of six world renowned Street Artists whose work we admire greatly and whom we think you will appreciate as well.
Case says he has had a special relationship with the people of Haiti for quite some time and he is very glad to be able to support Swoon and her team. “Both me and my wife fell in love with the Haiti and its amazing people while I was painting in Port-au-Prince,” he says.
And the new print is from a new painting based on a photograph he took. The new print piece is called “Sunshower 2017”.
“The little fellow Case painted on the canvas was one of the boys that used to stay with him while he was painting his mural in the Dominican Republic,” his wife Samira tells us as she describes one recent trip to Haiti.
We are very honored that Case agreed to participate in this show with us and excited that he is part of this great effort.
You probably are familiar with this pioneering German photorealist and founding member of the Ma’Claim Crew and have seen images of his murals throughout the world but in case you are not, learn more about Case Maclaim here .
