Artists t-shirt – ‘Auto -export’ t-shirt with graphic artist Patrick Thomas @xpatrickthomas
Patrick Thomas is a graphic artist, author and educator. He studied at Central Saint Martins and the Royal College of Art in London before relocating to Barcelona in 1991. He currently lives and works in Berlin, Germany.
He has exhibited his limited-edition silkscreens across five continents, where many are now held in private and public collections. He has lectured and held many workshops worldwide, extensively in the UK and Spain.
In 2019 he created Open Collab a self-run workshop format to enable and encourage collaboration, dialogue and experimentation between participants. In March 2020 a free online platform was launched during Covid-19 lockdown to enable remote real-time collaboration. Since its launch thousands of creatives have participated worldwide.
Since October 2013 he is a professor at Staatlichen Akademie der Bildenden Künste Stuttgart. He is a member of Alliance Graphique Internationale and in Spring 2019 he was invited for a seven week residency at Deutsche Akademie Rom Villa Massimo, the German Academy in Rome. In January 2020 his artwork for The Berliner Philharmoniker was shortlisted for a Grammy.
We have collaborated with Patrick on this bold t-shirt designs issuing one of the many collections of ephemera he works with. The strong graphic shapes and typographic forms from this found advertising card make a segment piece to contrast with plain casuals.
‘Auto -export’ t-shirt comes in one colour way at the moment, however we are planning some bold backgrounds and a mens version too.
