Blank Canvas. Fred White. New York City, NY.
“As you can see, this shirt has some paint on it- it wasn’t an accident. I was working at the Patagonia SoHo store about ten years ago and a customer came in and dropped off this shirt- he said it had been in his closet for thirty years and he didn’t need it anymore. I saw it as a blank canvas. The idea with painting on clothing is that it can be preserved & appreciated longer by turning it into a piece of artwork."
