Go Go Gocco Go!
So, we've done a new tee and this one's a collaboration between ourselves, Outré Gallery and local artist Kyles Hughes-Odgers (aka Creepy). You might have seen Creepy's art around town, beautifying buildings and walls city wide. We've long been a fan so having the opportunity to produce a tee with his print on it is a real boost!
How did this come about? Well, there's this pretty rad exhibition going on over at Outré Gallery at the moment, it started today in the Perth pad, and it's happening over east too. It's a series of Gocco prints from some super artists. As well as the above design from Creepy, there's the likes of Angelique Houtkamp, Apak, Eveline Tarunadjaja, kozyndan, Leah Dent and Shag participating. We are excited to have a little mini spin-off in our Mini Art Mart! On our walls we are proudly displaying prints from Beci Orpin, Gemma Jones, Sean Morris, Miso, Cat Rabbit, Mel Stringer, and Creepy of course.
And as part of Outskirts Festival happening on and around William Street in Northbridge this Sunday 25th, our very own Isabelle is going to be doing a Gocco print demonstration between 2pm and 4pm at Outré Gallery. You should come on down, it's going to be heaps of fun!
If this Gocco talk is all gobbledygook, it's a lo-fi, Japanese printing process using flash bulbs and screens and inks. It's homemade quality is really lovely.
Anyhoodle, we thought we'd celebrate all this Gocco love with a limited edition tee. We have 100 in a women's fit and 100 in a men's fit. All are printed locally, in Perth, on tri-blend, American Apparel tees. They are soft and comfy!
They are available in store, online, and also at Outré's Perth gallery. They go for $59.
