Dave the Chimp - Berlin
Dave the Chimp has been riding skateboards since the mid 1980’s, painting on found wood and making fanzines since the mid 1990’s, and working in the streets since 1998. He still does all these things, as well as exhibiting his art in galleries and museums world wide, working as an illustrator for a variety of clients, directing pop videos, compiling books, and curating exhibitions. Dave has exhibited alongside the leading names in the urban art scene, including Banksy, Blu, Miss Van, Swoon, Os Gemeos, Shepard Fairey, Space Invader, and Zevs. He was the first UK artist to have his own artist model shoe created by Vans, and a book of his work (Part Of Rebellion 2 – Dave the Chimp) was published by Publikat in 2009. In 2011 he built his first concrete skateable sculpture “Papa und Ich” outside of the Bethanien, Berlin, and the wooden “friendship bowl” in the Awanganda Gallery, Wroclaw, Poland. He has since built the “Papa und Ich Speilplatz” skatepark in Milan, and the “Troll Bridge Ramp” at La Condition Publique, Roubaix, France. He is currently focused on change, encouraging exploration, protest culture and positive vibrations, with his “Human Bean” characters as the medium through which to go on this adventure.
100for10 T-Shirt edition
100for10 is an art project initiated by Melville Brand Design in Munich, Germany. Print is dead – is never dead. To publish a book is a bad idea – is a very good idea. 100for10 is a series of art books, of which each issue contains 100 black and white pages and costs only € 10. 100for10 is distributed worldwide, thanks to print-on-demand. A great concept of presenting unique work to a broad audience – not in a high gloss coffee table book – but as raw as they come, right out of the sketch book and only in black and white.
The unique 100for10 T-Shirt edition was created in cooperation with ThokkThokk. Awesome motifs from selected artists are digitally printed on organic and Fairtrade ThokkThokk T-Shirts.
Fairtrade TT02 Print T-Shirt made of organic cotton!
The popular ThokkThokk men´s T-shirt is made of 100% GOTS and Fairtrade certified organic cotton. The T-shirt is rather narrow, elegant and slightly longer than a normal one. The extra length makes it very comfortable to wear.
In the design process we used clear, simple lines and kept the seams to the bare minimum. The design was developed further over the years and is very popular!
The high-quality, smooth and long-lasting organic fabric gives the T-shirt a comfortable fit. Due to prewashing, the fabric gets very soft and the shirt stays in shape even after several washing cycles. The T-shirt is dyed according to the OEKO-TEX® Standard 100 without any harmful chemicals. The manufacturing company is SA8000-certified. By purchasing this product you are also supporting our project against child labour.
This print is handmade in Germany!
