Kong Artist Series

Kong is excited to announce our new project, launching  11.15.2013.  Has Launched. You’ll be able to see the first editions at our studios during the East Austin Studio Tour starting tomorrow. See the shirts now by clicking here.

We’re taking art off the wall and putting it on you!

The Kong Artist Series (#KAS) is an ongoing collaborative series between Kong Screenprinting and leading contemporary artists.  Kong invites an established or emerging artist to design a series of shirts, focused on a theme of subject the artist selects. No limitations are placed on subject matter. Artist are encouraged to experiment with the T-shirt as a venue for their concept and aesthetics, and to use it as a way to build more intimate connections with the wearer.

The designs are printed on the finest garments with premium inks and the utmost attention of Kong’s Master Printers. Initial runs of each design will be 60 shirts, which are published as open editions. Every detail has been considered. Our approach is simple – use the highest highest quality garments and processes possible, and let the art shine.

Garments tell as story about who we are and what we care about in the world. The Kong Artist Series appeals to people who realize that graphics can project quality, intellect, humor and beauty. If you’re looking for something unique, the Kong Artist Series will offer you new ways to break the mold.

To launch the series, Kong has selected three artists – Jiha Moon, M-lon (AKA Miguel Gonzalez)  and Kristofer Porter. Here’s a sneak peak of what’s to come:
