New Tees from Art In The Age

by Andy on October 12, 2009


Okay, so these tees aren’t ‘new’ as they were released at least a week ago now, but if I haven’t seen them, they’re new to me!

In typical Art In The Age style, they’re pretty odd design, but also pretty great, so it works out quite nicely. AITA tees are good quality, so whilst $34 is not particularly cheap for a tee, I can guarantee (but not actually guarantee) that the tee will last for a long time. If you’re the kind of person that enjoys reading press releases (though to be fair, I actually managed to read this one without dying of boredom unlike most of the releases I get sent, yes, that’s right, I have died several times whilst reading press releases), I’ve included the one that accompanies this line after the break, also, the pic above links to a much larger version in which you can see the designs much better.

Art In The Age

Art in the Age is pleased to present our Fall/Winter 2009 collection featuring seven new artists and twelve new tees for both men and women. Continuing with the high quality of custom cutting, dying, and stitching, these private label tees exhibit some of the most exciting original art we have presented yet. Quirky custom dye colors include, “French Fry,” “Clean Pigeon,” and “Coloring Book Whale.”

The Fall 2009 artist line up includes painters, mixed media artists, and print makers who all are influenced by the process of printmaking to create works that value the concept of reproduction in various forms. The artists include, Amy Mayfield and Andrea Meyers, Caleb Neelon, Chris Kline, Lizz Wasserman, Matt Neff, and Richard Colman.

A highlight of the collection is artist Matt Neff’s, “Chandelier,” tee. To mimic the artist’s original artwork, which was applied with sugar, Art in the Age used a flocking technique to capture the aesthetic.

Two well known artists featured for Fall/Winter 2009 are Richard Colman and Caleb Neelon. Colman, known for his background in graffiti, provided Art in the Age with raw art from his personal sketchbooks for the, “Lady Skull,” tee for women, and for the “Two Women and a Head,” tee for men.

Caleb Neelon’s paintings and installation artwork have appeared in solo and group shows in venues throughout America and Europe, as murals on walls in Kathmandu, Reykjavik, Bermuda, Calcutta, Sao Paulo, across Europe and in dozens of books, magazines, and newspapers around the world. “Bull on Boat,” printed as a wrap around screen print tee features one of his more popular images, which can also be seen on his murals.
