Hang On to Yourself

We presented our new design Non Conformist past week to you. In our blog we let you take a glance of our designers motives. A design can be just pleasing or esthetic, commercial and popular. Created for instant succes….

Maybe money making is less interesting than using all your creative powers and really make an effort to add something fresh to this world. That could be a thought, an idea, an opinion driven by other motives than opportunism and money. Plain and honest statements, they seem rare these days.

One of my ultimate Heroe of non conformism was The Wide Eyed Boy From Free Cloud, David Bowie. When I was a insecure teenager he thaught me,  that being different was cool, ultra cool. He made artistic statements and was inimitable. Still, today, almost a year after he died, Ziggy’s Stardust was never more shining in his absents. Still he left a void. The world needs Little Wonders like he was.

We al seek for Saviour Machines, but as the lyrics of the song says, If you please them to much it will control and destroy you……It needs a counter word, an opposing word to sharpen his mind. It needs a Sense Of Doubt. 

Live is Quicksand as it is, Fashions comes and Fame goes. Living Under Pressure in order to find this Velvet Goldmine. 

Day in Day out, we trie so hard to be a part of something bigger but in fact we our selves could be larger than the sum of our coins and the size of our ego. We could be Heroes, just for one day. Doing it the Right way….and Don’t Look Back In Anger

Dear David, we salute you and thank you for all the inspiration!

Artwearness. Wearable art. Accessible for the masses, suitable for the connoisseur Our concept is simple; for us a t-shirt is like a canvas with artistic & social statements longing to be exposed. With our artistic statements and ironic graphics, we seduce and tickle the wearer of the shirt to get out of his or her comfort zone and become more than a billboard for a brand name. Inspiration. Some of the prints are inspired on and extracted from artworks made by Artwearness founder Marit Otto, visual artist, in Zwolle. They are stripped of their original context and placed in a new perspective. Next to this we present fresh and new conceptual graphic designs. These concepts are based on an idea, a hunch or on current events. Our variety of shirts distinguish themselves by several themes like statementz, artwearness, awareness, specialz, and philosophicalz, Girlz & Boyz Artwearness is awareness The time we live in requires a different way of thinking and (re)acting. We are dealing with mass culture, overconsumption, over population and climate change. Artwearness offers the conscious consumer an original and honest product; we believe in making choices Sustainability and fair-trade. Artwearness has no stock; each order is printed on demand for each customer. No stock means no surplus and no waste resulting in a smaller ecological footprint. We print on Stanley and Stella shirts. They produce beautiful, high quality, modern, sustainable and slave free products. We are very aware of the world around us and we offer the conscious consumer an honest alternative to the price fighting fashion industry. Currently this is still reflected in the price of our products. Artwearness is an initiative by Marit Otto (www.maritotto.nl) and Erik van Scheijndel. (www.19hetatelierarchitecten.nl) Artwearness also offers a platform for other artists. Artwearness is always looking for more creatives. Designers, artists and illustrators are more than welcome to join our club and expand their options for showing their concepts. Artwearness wants to exhale artfulness, playfulness, enthusiasm and sustainability. We invite you into a cool and untamed world of art and philosophy.
