new design ‘Unknown Artist’

 

Unknown Artist; All he or she ever wanted was create something genuine because he/she needed to. What he or she forgot to calculate is the smothering embrace of recognition or the absence of it. ……

The additional ‘real’ story to this design; the male nude study is extracted from an original sketch of an unknown Rijks -Academy (Amsterdam) student from1929 from my own modest private art collection.

Unknown Artist is as of today available in our web-shop @ www.artwearness.com

Unknown Artist; Alles wat hij of zij ooit wilde was iets oprechts maken omdat de intrinsieke behoefte daar was. Wat hij of zij vergat mee te rekenen was de verstikkende omhelzing van succes of het ontbreken daaraan…

Een additioneel ‘echt verhaal over dit ontwerp : de naakte man studie is gebaseerd op een originele schets van een onbekende Rijks Academie Student (Amsterdam), gemaakt in 1929 uit mijn eigen bescheiden kunst collectie.

Unknown Artist is vanaf vandaag in de webshop te verkrijgen @ www.artwearness.com

Nothing beats the strange paradox of the unknown artist. The unknown artist is smartly escaping mass approval and is the best-kept secret or a recommendation for the early adapter. A star is jet to emerge…be aware….There is a true story behind this design… wanna know?

Do you recognize this faceless artist?

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.
