Korrupt Label Deconstructed Tees [Submitted]

by Dawn on July 20, 2011

The Designer Henry Miyoshi was born in Thailand and raised with a punk rock ethos and a DIY mentality and it shows in his deconstructed, highly detailed graphic tee shirts and hoodies that are layered with text, images and patches and proudly made in West Oakland California, or as it’s known locally OakTown.

Unlike many Graphic Tee designers you won’t find PhotoShop in his studio, he believes in a low-tech approach, using a highly detailed process that includes copy machines to size images and then resizes on old-fashioned collage and paste-ups to create new images and screens for painting. When we visited the studio he had a bucket full of patches in water with 200 opened tee bags, waiting for mold to develop to get the right effect! We aren’t lying see pic below.
