Collaborations with artists is what we are all about! And the first one is finally a fact.
We have been announcing that collage artist Sammy Slabbinck will develop a special collage for LoveIsMyReligion, and the moment has arrived!
In his typical style, he has created this 50s housewife examining love. The colours and the digital heart create an interesting contrast with the black and white lady.
The first tests are being printed as we speak.
We can't wait to launch a new collection of shirts, tops and hoodies featuring this beauty!
Sammy Slabbinck (°1977 Belgium ) is a Belgian artist based in Bruges. He began as a vendor of vintage postcards, and this led to him finding his voice as a collage artist.
He renders dynamic surreal collage prints and original collages on paper, combining vintage photographs with contemporary compositional styles. The images are cut up into pieces and redistributed, playing with exaggeration and proportions. Other times, the images are placed in a reverse context, juxtaposing modern ideals with traditional states of mind.
The result is a composition that meditates on the past and considers the absurdity of popular culture.
