making shirts at home
After finishing my art classes this semester, I started thinking of what I could create at home, with little resources. I really enjoyed silkscreening, so I wanted to make some shirts at home. The problem with silkscreening is that you need plenty of space, it’s messy and you need equipment, chemicals and paint. I decided to take a different approach and make it as simple as I could. I made some handmade stencils and used acrylic paint. I bought some vintage mechanic shirts and decided to add some captions to them. Something very forward, punk, maybe insulting. This is the first shirt I made. I made it for myself and I wear it with pride.
