This is the second installment in the series of Christmas gift ideas for street art fans, which is particularly focusing on the commercial world of Sao Paulo street art. If you missed the first one about MUDO prints and t-shirts then go and see it now:
PART 2: APOLO TORRES x ESCALPE
Fresh out last week I believe for the launch of the new brand called Escalpe are these two designs by Sao Paulo street artists Apolo Torres. Both t-shirts are available in a couple of different colors, a choice of neck type and are also offered for both male and female cuts. They are selling on the site for R$78.00 each, which includes shipping unless you need it within five days.
If you check out the Escalpe website, you will see that as well as the Apolo Torres designs they have other designs available by illustrators, tattoo artists and typographers, and I imagine they release more designs by other street artists in the future. www.escalpe.com
Personally I am recommending these t-shirts entirely based on the art-work and artist involved and cannot vouch for the quality of the actual t-shirts being used, which unfortunately is something I often find to be of poor quality in Brazil. You will have to see for yourself, but judging by the different neck-types on offer, and the fact they are selling both masculine and feminine versions, it suggests they have made some effort with the quality of garment.
