Known for his vibrant, color-blocked palette and geometric designs, Ubiera has created custom illustrations that highlight iconic local elements such as architecture, music, sports and the subway. His artwork will be prominently displayed at both the Long Island City and Queens Center Mall locations.

The chain operates more than 200 stores across the U.S. and Canada and is committed to social responsibility. Through its “Buy a Pair, Give a Pair” program, Warby Parker donates a pair of glasses to someone in need for every pair sold.
