Video: TEES: Exploring Melbourne’s T-Shirt Culture

This article was posted by ColaP 1 year, 9 months, 1 week, 1 day, 1 hour, 36 minutes ago.

T-world, the world’s only t-shirt journal, recently got together with Just Another (a creative agency dedicated to providing opportunities for illustrators, muralists, street artists, and graphic designers) and the National Gallery of Victoria (a.k.a. NGV, Australia’s oldest public art gallery), to put together an exhibition focusing on the city of Melbourne’s t-shirt history.

Interwoven with the city’s tee history is its art, street, graffiti and skate culture. The above video features cameos of world-famous graff artists and graphic artists, whose work has helped to shape Australia’s t-shirt culture and street culture. Here, you’ll get a behind-the-scenes view of screen-printing factories, artist’s studios, and street wear shops.

Check out this vibrant and inspiring video, and, should you find yourself in Oz, be sure to stop by the NGV before the show’s end on February 17th.
