Shawn Mortensen Tribute

Image: Undefeated

Undftd’s Billboard Project pays tribute to the late photographer, Shawn Mortensen, whose prolific contribution to the visual identity of fashion, advertising, and music industries will live on beyond his years. Mortensen passed away early last month at the age of 45. The billboard can be seen above Undftd’s Los Angeles store at 112.5 S. Labrea, Los Angeles, CA. We applaud them for this fitting tribute.

Shawn Mortensen R.I.P.


Los Angeles, CA. 1965-2009.

It’s a very sad moment, having to say goodbye to a wonderful, tremendously talented person, let alone a friend. Shawn Mortensen is pictured here, dedicating one of his books to me at his home, just weeks ago. I had just acquired his polaroid of KAWS from the Honor Fraser opening for my collection. Such a brilliant photographer. He will be deeply missed. All our condolences to his family.

R.I.P. Mr. C.


Los Angeles, CA. 1937-2008.

One of the most provocative, bold voices in comedic arts has been lost. Keeping it real for his entire career, there is little chance anyone presently will be able to eclipse the work of this genius. Rest in peace, Mr. George Carlin.
