I am always on the lookout for cool t-shirts. So when I saw the Des Artistes collection for the first time recently on ecouterre, I almost flipped out.
An eco-conscious label out of Germany, Des Artistes introduces works from emerging and notable contemporary artists and says on their site that “Every limited edition tee is a canvas for inspiration and an exhibition of the human spirit.” I believe it.
Charles Anderson’s “Chocolate Factory” makes you consider your relationship with art. Just look at illustrator Kera Till’s “Abeba” and the more provocative “Brain Inflation” by one of China’s most widely known contemporary artists, Ai Weiwei. The “Inflation” is of the artist’s actual brain hemorrhage resulting from a run with some police brutality last year.
And best of all, these limited edition tees go to benefit Doctors Without Borders.
They are limited so how do you get one? Looks like you just follow the contact link and shoot them an email.
Hopefully with the designer being represented currently in D&A’s Green Room, they’ll get some accounts in your area.
