AnyForty Charity Group Show: Artist Unveil 15 of 25

Back with the quickness, no time to catch your breath folks following the event location unveil, proud to hit you off with artist unveil number 15 of 25 of the incredible lineup of worldwide artists who’ve donated their time and skills for our AnyForty Charity Group show taking place at 5th Base Gallery, London from July 24th until July 27th, and again, in no particular order, proud to announce another of our brand new guest artists…

Alongside Justin Maller, Luke Choice aka Velvet Spectrum is another Australian artist currently based in New York and a artist we’ve known since… think 2009/2010?! Basically a long ass time, first meeting him through AnyForty collaborators MegaMunden and Another Example on a boozy weekend in Brighton. He’s been a artist we’ve always kept track off, dudes really found his style the last few years and has been crafting it as part of the incredible Vault49 studio in New York during the day and producing some incredible personal work outside of it. His 3D work is really jaw dropping, but so far wasn’t something we thought would translate well to traditional screen printed garments, however with this group show being digital prints, it made sense to get him involved, can be sure whatever he does will absolutely blow your mind. If you haven’t come across Velvet Spectrum’s work yet, feast your eyes on some of the gems below and get inspired. We’re super stoked to have him involved in the show, welcome to the AnyForty Family pal!

AnyForty Versus Exhibition 2014: Artist Unveil 5 of 25

Proud to continue the unveiling of our incredible lineup of 25 worldwide artists that we’ve pulled together for our AnyForty Versus Charity Exhibition taking place in London (venue to be announced) in July, with an incredible artist who is completely new to the AnyForty Family , ladies and gentleman give a warm family welcome to…

Justin Maller is a illustrator and art director from Melbourne, Australia who is now based in Brooklyn, NY, he’s a man we’ve known about for a long ass time now,  but have never had a chance to work with him yet, until now!  The art geeks in you will know Justin is the man behind the digital modern art collective Depthcore, and as a freelancer has cracked up a banging client list including the likes of Dolby, Verizon, Nike, and Coca-Cola. If your not familiar with his name, you’ll certainly of seen his work before, man is a absolute fucking monster in photoshop.

Super proud to have him involved in this project and can’t wait to see what he cooks up alongside the rest of the jaw dropping lineup.

So that’s 1/5th of the final line up revealed so far, joining Justin is Paulo Arraiano, Travis Price, Ben The Illustrator and Ben Brown. Who’s up next? Tune in on Wednesday to find out!

New York state of mind

If you follow us on Facebook or Twitter, you’ll have seen our friends and up-coming collaborators T-world  are currently in New York hosting a series of events to celebrate the launch of their new issue 7, dedicated to the tee brands and artists of NYC.

Currently they’ve had events like the mag launch at Jeremyville‘s studio, a Mr T tastic tee collaboration release party at Mishka, a Claw Money x Deb paint off, and tomorrow night is a rather special one going down at Jeffstaple’s Reed Space with an exclusive T-world signing session by the incredible Grotesk , live screenprinting by BKNY and an exhibition of the photographic work of the brilliant Nicole Reed, who is the photographer of all the portraits in the incredible new issue of T-world.

When Eddie of T-world gave us the opportunity to throw an AnyForty & T-world party over in New York to celebrate the last four months of solid graft on our upcoming ‘The Australian Invasion Series’, we simply couldn’t resist.

We arrive on Friday afternoon and our event is on Thursday 10th May – if you’re in New York you’d be a fool to miss it. Keep your eye on our Facebook page or T-world‘s for a venue announcement real soon, and follow our Instagram for pics on our travels.

Gonna be sick-in-the-face!!!

T-world Issue 7 – The New York Issue!

8th December 2011 | Tags: , , , , ,

Our good mates down under at T-world are on a roll right about now. As if coming to the end of curating the month-long NEXT project on Cockatoo Island (Sydney) wasn’t enough, they’ve also just dropped the brand new issue of the mag that they’ve been working on for the last year.

Completely redesigned and relaunched for issue 7. Featuring a posh-as-fuck hardback cover, knocking on the doors of 200 beautifully designed and researched pages featuring a who’s who of the New York scene, including legends like jeffstaple, Mishka, Only NY, 10 Deep, Supreme, Reason, The Hundreds & the man behind the “I HEART NY” graphic – Milton Glaser – alongside so much more!

The mag’s just dropped in Australia, already sold out at HalfSleeve, but is due in more stockists any day now.

Unfortunately for us Europeans, it’s not due to make its way over to our shores until some point next Spring. If you don’t want to wait ’til then, go buy one from overseas, I know that’s what we’re going to do. First UK-based reader to get a copy of the mag and take a picture of them holding it, showing the page with our first ever full page advert on, gets a free AnyForty tee!
