We’re super excited to announce that we’ve teamed up with street artist Malarko for the second in a series of print collaborations. Conceived to showcase the most innovative in-house screen and garment printing techniques we want the limited edition t-shirt boxes to deliver unique and beautifully made art products released on a quarterly basis. This ongoing project will encourage participating artists to reimagine the humble t-shirt and screen print for a final interpretation that’s sure to be completely original every time. Initially gaining notoriety by adorning shop shutters with his vividly colourful and jazzy characters Malarko’s body of work now encompasses a whole range of media and has been commissioned by the likes of Adidas and the V&A to name a few so we’re pretty chuffed to have him on board.
The 3rd Rail x Malarko t-shirt pack plays to the artist’s quirky sense of humour and love of lively and colourful characters and will be available for pre order via the 3rd Rail Presents and Malarko online stores in a limited edition of 75. The final product will contain the following:
1 x 4 colour cut and sew t-shirt
1 x 4 colour screen print – 24cm x 30cm on South Bank Smooth 310gsm
1 x Single colour screen print (for colouring in) – 24cm x 30cm on South Bank Smooth 310gsm
8 x 4 colour finger puppet screen printed cards – 12cm x 15cm on South Bank Smooth 310gsm
1 x 4 colour screen printed mask box
1 x pack of crayons
To celebrate the project 3rd Rail will be running an online contest in which they will be giving away 15 of the 75 t-shirt packs. Information about how to enter will be posted on the @3rdrailclothing Twitter and @3rdrailpresents Instagram accounts.
