Remi Rough, Communi-T | Now Available!
Kicking off our first Communi-T collab for 2023, we continue to bridge the culture between fashion and art with our latest partner joining the Footpatrol Communi-T roster, that is, South London-born artist Remi Rough. Remi delivers his distinctive two-dimensional artwork into wearable form.
Utilising the city landscape as a canvas for his abstract compositions, Remi Rough’s artwork is heavily derived from the 80s graffiti movement. Pushing architectural boundaries with shape and space that date back to his experiences as a graffiti writer.
In later years, Remi Rough’s iconography stemmed beyond its train writing origins, with his first works exhibited at Whitechapel Gallery in 1990 to The Fort Wayne Museum of Art, Indiana in the US in 2022. Not to mention his participation in the largest mural in London, alongside other members of the Agents of Change.
Remi’s bold graff-styled graphic features on the front chest of an aqua coloured 100% cotton tee. On the reverse, his hand-written wordmark reads: ‘This Side of Paradise’. The wordmark is taken from the name of a book by F Scott Fitzgerald, who was the first person to publish the word ’t-shirt’.
