In an effort to thank those who helped it raise to become one of the more notable fashion brands from Denmark, WOOD WOOD asked ten friends as well as collaborators to designed a t-shirt collection in celebration of its 10th anniversary. To be release in the a series of five, the first pack includes work from Mischa Hollenbach, one half of Perks And Mini (PAM) brand, Brooklyn-base graphic meister Eric Elms, who created the now legendary Supreme box logo, and FUZI UV TPK , one of the more iconic graffiti writers in Europe. There is also photography duo Aurélien Arbet and Jérémie Ergy, whose JSBJ publishing house keeps contemporary photography. And finally, Anders Jander of Museum Studio, another past collaborators. All tees will be available in May of this year at WOOD WOOD retail locations around the globe. Stay tuned with more collaborations to come later this year.
Release Date: May 2012
Aurélien Arbet and Jérémie Ergy have been working together since 1999 doing photography, design, art direction, curating etc. In 2007 the two French artists founded the independent publishing company JSBJ Je Suis une Bande de Jeunes that supports and publish contemporary photography. The T-shirt that they have created truly demonstrates their whereabouts in the art world.
With a past as a screen printer for Shepard Fairey and designer at legendary New Yorker brand Supreme, Eric Elms has definitely made a name for himself. Today Elms works as an independent art director and artist and also runs And Press, a small art book publishing company. Lately he has exhibited and published works with his Kilroy imagery that now also inhabits the Wood Wood logo.
FUZI UV TPK is a veteran graffiti writer, who wrote his name on trains and subways across Europe in the 1990s and mid-2000s, and became known for his "Ignorant style", a raw but rather humorous approach. In more recent years, he has developed as a tattoo artist, and he recently released the book Flash Tattoo Collection No. 1, which captures the bizarre world of the French vandal.
We have been working with Mischa Hollenbach for many years and it was only natural to ask him to create a print for our anniversary pack. Mischa is well known for him and his wife's work with their fellow brainchild, the clothing brand Perks And Mini. Besides putting out Australia's finest apparel, Mischa also is the driving force behind the art/ music super group The Changes and have exhibited at venues such as Deitch Projects in New York and Mu Gallery in Eindhoven.
Since we contributed to his Museum Paper some years ago we have kept close contact to Anders Jander aka Museum Studio. Besides being a nice guy, Anders is one of the most talented and highly regarded European artists today. His T-shirt design for the anniversary pack is a good example of his graphic work.
