Our newest project in the “ONETSHIRT guest collaborations” series is with Richard Woods, a multi-faceted British artist.
His BRICKSFLOWERSWOOD collection is a premium t-shirts line playing with the artists' distinctive, colourful and familiar to the trained eye patterns.
By easily attracting attention with it's strong printed graphics, the collection made it's debut presentation in 10 Corso Como in Milan during Salone Internazionale del Mobile. Currently, we are in the processing of arranging additional events to celebrate this special collaboration and secure more exposure to the project.
ABOUT RICHARD WOODS
Born in 1966, Richard Woods graduated from the Slade School of Fine Art in 1990. His exhibitions and projects include the Victoria and Albert Museum, the Royal Academy of Art in London, Grieder Contemporary in Zurich and Deitch Projects in New York and Miami, among others.Originally trained as a sculptor, Woods would rather think of his work in terms of surfaces, while his architectural interventions are chiefly concerned with the re-surfacing of existing structures.
Over the past few years, he has designed a sensational interior for the Comme des Garçons' flagship store in Osaka, collaborated with Paul Smith, and transformed the interior of Cary Grant's former Hollywood residence for its new owner, Jeffrey Deitch. Works by Richard Woods are held in major collections including the Saatchi Collection, Arts Council England, and the British Museum.
For ONETSHIRT, he verifies the impact of his well-known large scale patterns on everyday clothes. His strong graphics, huge simplicity and colourfulness, as in a comic strip, printed all over on t-shirts became a kind of camouflage.
