Winner Stays On: An artist versus series which pits emerging and established artists in a head-to-head battle for T-shirt design supremacy.
The format is simple; two designers each create a unique T-shirt design, and at midnight on 1st November, we’ll put both designs on sale for just 48 hours. Whichever design sells the most wins. The reigning champion will then go on to compete in the next bout, with a new theme and an entirely new design.
Kicking the competition off – Tom Sheehan, of Pyramid Factory and Vida Skateboards, goes toe to toe with Fraser Gillespie, of Dalliance Collective. Their theme for our series debut is “Daedalus” – legendary craftsman of Greek mythology, father of Icarus, and creator of the labyrinth in which the great Minotaur was kept.
As a bonus feature for collectors, the first five orders of each design will receive a numbered print, personally signed by the artist. And, before the screens are destroyed, a final screen print will be stored in our archives until a gallery exhibition in Autumn 2016, where we’ll celebrate the series so far.
