Here at Strutten, we like wearing T-Shirts, we like art, and we like watching T-shirt being created in front of our very eyes. Granted, we’ve never actually seen this process, so Let’s Face It is an excellent chance to do so.
Let’s Face It, an evening of live collaboration with twelve of the region’s leading artists and graphic designers, is set to take place this coming Thursday 29th November.
This inaugural unique event promises live T-shirt artistry in a lively atmosphere, created by the undeniably colourful collection of hand-picked artists including renowned Gold Coast pop-art specialist Claudio Kirac, modernist Simon DeGroot, DUSC, Mel Baxter and Skullcap.
Set in a modern industrial-style Newstead studio, the headquarters to some of Brisbane leading creatives including Sam Thiess Photography, Let’s Face It takes selected portions of ‘face-themed’ artwork from the 12 participating artists, and mashes them to create a unique artistic re-mix. The resultant designs, each a one-off artwork containing the collaborative talent of several local artists, are screen-printed onto tshirts live at the event.
T-shirts can be purchased pre-ordered or purchased at the event and, with a maximum of just 50 tshirts being produced, are tipped to be highly collectable works of art.
With strong agendas in promoting both established and emerging local artists, interactive live collaboration and the use of high-quality, ethical T-shirt manufacturers AS Colour, Let’s Face It is shaping up to be a premier art show in Brisbane in 2012.
