White Canvas Project
From the street art collections that don the office walls, to the doodle-jams that took place in our old skate shop spawning the brand Supremebeing has today, they have always had an affinity with street art and the culture in which it exists. Providing constant inspiration for t-shirt and graphic designs, street art has helped develop Supremebeing into a clothing brand well known for its use of color in design.
The White Canvas Project became the gallery for all collaboration t-shirts as well as giving us the platform to release mid-season collabs and one-off designs. The project will continue to explore the different areas that art exists in and offer platforms for new projects and events to happen. With different artists and locations coming into play each event will have a different style and vibe all with the same goal of bringing creatives together.
The first event dubbed ‘CamJam’ was located in a disused warehouse that backs onto the river. Surrounded by gardens and wildlife, the location provided the perfect fusion of urban and country inspiration. There were boat trips, fishing, clay ovens, home brew, bell tents, camp fires, songs, and of course lots and lots of painting. Some of the random objects that got painted included rusty 60′s medicine signs, car parts, authentic wartime helmets, ammo boxes, an entire office. All of which got ‘prettied up’ by the featured artists: Will Barras, MrJago, SheOne, David Walker and Blue the Warrior
Basically the artists, all long-term friends with complementing styles, went over to Cambridge over 2 weekends, and painted on everything they could get their hands on – from old car doors, old bits of furniture, and odd bits of wood. Journalist Helen Soteriou was invited to tag along and took some exclusive pictures.
Their efforts will all be displayed in a show, curated by SheOne, on Thursday, October 13th, at 81 Leonard Street, London.
