Leo Namislow - Essen
Leo (-Leander) Namislow, born in 1982 in Essen, lives and works as a freelance artist in Essen. Growing up in a rural environment in Rhineland-Palatinate, he started to creatively engage with his surroundings early on. After his training as a stonemason, Leo worked for an animation company in Frankfurt. When he moved back to Essen in 2007 he eventually started living off his creative output. Since then he has had several solo exhibitions and took part in many group shows in a variety of institutions such as the Kunstverein Essen-Werden. His works fascinate by opening up new fantastic worlds to the viewer on the one hand and by proving of a large multiplicity of techniques on the other hand. This book gives an insight into a sample, mainly comprised of black and white works, of a much larger, colourful and ever increasing artistic universe.
100for10 T-Shirt edition
100for10 the monographs book series initiated, curated and published by Melville Brand Design has been characterised as such: "It seems that the publications, more than most other artists’ books, are more personal, direct and rough, thus providing an inside view in the way the artist works, almost like looking over their shoulder or revealing secrets." The over-whelming response by visitors and artists alike have encouraged us: More books and more exhibitions are to follow.
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!
