Radio-Active Records Launches Fashionable T-Shirt Line
|One way to have a twisted Christmas.|
Richard Vergez explains:
When asked by Mikey Ramirez to create a new "designer" T-shirt series for Radio-Active, I jumped at the opportunity to work outside of the Radio-Active branding. Although the Radio-Active image has a strong aesthetic, I was shooting for something more alternative and darker. My biggest inspirations are surrealism in the works of Man Ray and Laszlo Moholy-Nagy. I wanted to give people a nice little work of art they could go out with and exhibit themselves. For this series, I have designed two slightly music-related shirts and two purely visual, abstract type designs, the latter being silkscreened translations of two of my original hand-cut collages. These arrive just in time for the holidays. So if you'd rather surf iTunes for digital music clouds, just remember you can't download a cool T-shirt.Each shirt comes in men's and women's sizes and costs $20.
