Original Logo Adult Unisex T-Shirt
I created this shirt in 2017 out of frustration with the lack of appreciation for the arts. I originally planned to wear it myself but I wondered if anyone else would like it too.
The first person to wear it was Natasha, a girl I ironically followed on Instagram who was launching the art platform, AucArt . I DMed her and asked what she thought about the t-shirt. She said she loved it and generously volunteered to wear it to an art fair in Istanbul to gauge reactions. The feedback? "Everyone loved it! Artists and gallerists alike were coming up to me! Get it online!"
The first batch was printed at a shop in my hometown and the website was launched. Shortly after, I sent an email to every art museum in the US asking them to consider the t-shirts for their shops. The Broad Museum in Los Angeles was the only one to respond. They graciously decided to roll the dice and became the first museum in the United States to carry the now world famous t-shirt.
