Kiser is a clothing brand whose shirts, jackets and hoodies were born in the streets and since, have gone far beyond their beginnings. Kiser Haydar Barnes began selling his unique graffiti-inspired apparel while dodging police officers on the streets of downtown New York City.

Kiser’s pursuit of truth and originality has lead him to create a series of one-of-a-kind, politically-charged designs.

Born in Nigeria, raised in Israel and educated at The Rochester Institute of Technology, Kiser’s art has blossomed into its own visual language. Kiser’s “Hunt Beauty” images are inspired by Hip-Hop, Middle-Eastern and African cultures which he blends together to form a symphony of universally relevant designs.

His current apparel line is featured in over 30 stores internationally and online. His shirts, and their designs, have been acclaimed by publications such as URB, Guys, Nylon, Source, GQ, Cargo, and Complex magazines …
