ASOS are contasntly developing the way in which they represent themselves in the e-tailing market place and supporting young artists is one of them. From today, they have launched a collaberative collection of tshirts with cult magazine and website It's Nice That.
It’s Nice That have selected 10 illustrators & photographers who have created these exclusive artworks for the shoppnig site. Have a watch of the above video, which is a fun look at each of the pieces below - and the pretty hott model has his torso on show for most of it. The artworks are printed on t-shirts which when purchased come with a limited edition print by each artists! So you not only have wearable art, you also get wall art too. All of the artists are young or new graduates at the top of their contemporary genres - with a lot from the south-west of England where I share my time between. Enjoy the images below and I have, in no particualr order, included the profiles of each artist involved in the collaberation.
