Kurt Cobain's daughter, Frances Bean Cobain, has launched a new clothing line repurposing original artwork by her late father, printing it on a range of t-shirts and hoodies.

The 'Kurt Was Here' collection features prints of the rockstars sketches, paintings and hand-written notes. It was specially curated by Frances Bean in partnership with Live Nation Merchandise and The End of Music, LLC, the business arm of Cobain's estate.

"We believe that the importance of art is exceedingly potent in today's social and political climate, and that it is the right time to share this collection of Kurt's work with artists, collectors and fans, allowing them to experience Kurt's legacy in a new way, and collectively celebrate his lasting impact on the world," Live Nation relayed in a statement to Rolling Stone on Monday (Sept. 9).

Mega-fans will notice the creative nexus of some Nirvana videos and album covers in Cobain's artwork, namely the crucifixes of 1993's 'Heart-Shaped Box' and the piecemeal figures seen on 1992's Incesticide. The clothing collection - which features more than 50 pieces in unisex sizing - displays Cobain's designs in their original from. They have not been edited or re-sized on the garments in a bid to retain their artistic integrity.

You can view and order all the items, including special bundles containing a coffee table book of Cobain's art along with limited edition posters, at the Kurt Cobain website.
