About Palm Treat

Poorly Painted Trash Art & Worse

Looking for the ultimate marriage of pop art paintings and hypebeast flair?

Enter Palm Treat

Born from a wild passion for '90s nostalgia poptrash, we began by painting large reimagined icons like the Simpsons and Ninja Turtles through a contemporary, street-art lens. Our breakout moment was a buzz-worthy show at the former North End Studios, Detroit in 2013. Since then, pop art aficionados and hypebeast enthusiasts alike, including names like Cole Bennett and Jens Hoffman, have added pieces of our art to their collections.

The digital universe took notice, and requests for prints and posters flooded in.

Digital Ascent

Tumblr and the rise of vaporwave led to early collaborations with brands and instigators like Vapor95 and Macintosh Plus. We found ourselves drawing inspiration from Lisa Frank's lavish megalomania and blending it with the tidal wave of sad boy content cresting over the internet at the time to produce lines of work in a futile attempt to fulfill the eternally insatiable desires of the business of street wear and fashion.

In a world that's perpetually online, we've leveraged our expertise in e-commerce and digital advertising.


Collaborating with global giants, our unique blend of pop art deep cuts and anti-corporate attitude have graced projects with legends like Pink Floyd and tech innovators Nokia. We were paid cartoonish sums to design assets for crypto companies that no longer exist. Adam Curtis would say something smart, now we're poor again.

There are no borders to what we are making.

Global Audience

Our global collaborations span from the immersive environments of Meow Wolf in Santa Fe to the soft aesthetics of Lonely Kids Club down under in Australia to dusty sunsets in Brazil where we once provided all of our design files to some street art kids who were making bootlegs, but like really good bootlegs.

We stopped selling merch and started giving the art files and drawings to fans.

As the years have progressed we have evolved along with the digital world.

Pandemic Internet

By 2016, the serendipitous dance between our unorthodox advertising and the enigmatic world of Weird Facebook took form. By 2022 social media had become too fragmented to reliably break through the noise of algorithm powered content feeds — and we had sold all of our paintings.
