Sydney designer Alex Lehours releases limited edition t-shirt
Ahead of a busy street art and design schedule in 2012, up-and-coming Sydney artist Alex Lehours has released a limited edition t-shirt available to the public. The one-off t-shirt is based on his signature ‘100% Minty Fresh’ artwork.
Alex knows a thing or two about t-shirts. His designs were recently showcased in the ‘NEXT’ t-shirt design section of Cockatoo Island’s OUTPOST ‘Art from the streets’ exhibition, and his ‘Paint the Town Red’ design was selected from hundreds of entries by Australian hip hop group Thundamentals as their official t-shirt for their national tour.
Alex said: “My inspiration comes from pop art, comics, pin-ups, and mixing vintage with a contemporary edge. My art also has a lot of dark, twisted, quirky humour. This limited edition t-shirt combines a unique design with that dark, but subtle, humour.”
Regarded by himself as a freshman to the commercial art scene, Alex is an artist with no boundaries. His work is a combination of the past and present. Pen, pencil, ink and water colour frequently appear in Alex's work, however he is constantly exploring new mediums and avenues for all of his pieces.
Alex has worked on numerous international and domestic projects including work for FBI Radio, The Australian Museum's Jurassic Lounge, Primo Magazine, The Pin Up Parlour, and ING Direct. He was also a contestant in the 2011 Secret Wars Sydney Series.
Ladies & men’s T-shirts are $40 and can be ordered from www.alexlehours.com
