Sibelius – t-shirt
To make some noise about our 10th anniversary, we have released a collection of limited edition t-shirts and tote bags that draw their inspiration from 1980s and 1990s band t-shirts. Our designs celebrate the mega stars of classical music.
Although Tommi “Sellekhanks” Mustaniemi was overjoyed to create the design for this Jean Sibelius t-shirt, the prospect of committing the most famous Finnish composer of all time to print was nevertheless a daunting one. Mustaniemi says the most challenging part of the process was finding a way to capture Sibelius’s iconic look while staying true to his own graffiti-inspired style.
“I decided to focus on a young-ish Sibelius with that distinctive plume of wild hair. For inspiration, I turned to an endless stack of comics from my youth and to the work of contemporary graffiti artists like Hombre, Sofles, Mike Giant, Pallo and Flying Förtress, who have a particular knack for creating powerful and sharply drawn characters.”
Our t-shirts are sustainably produced by Pure Waste using 100% recycled materials. Please note that the t-shirts are unisex but come in male sizing.
LIMITED EDITION, ONLY 300 AVAILABLE!
