This drawing was made by Griet Vingerhoets for I-Topia.
As a member of “Wabisabi”, a strictly female collective of Reggae selectors, she got inspired by Africa and Ethiopia in specific.
The drawing is a 7″ vinyl with a personal expression of Africa. The tree growing out of the vinyl represents the Roots and Tree we all come from. The birds suggests the freedom and choice of spreading your wings we should all have in life.
This is a 2 colour silkscreen.
The T-shirt is made by “Continental Clothing” Fairware collection and is made out of 100% cotton.
Wash inside out on 30° maximum and do not tumble dry! Please take good care of this unique piece of textile art.
