Art Appreciation: Currency of Color's Auctionable T-Shirts

color-tshirts-1211
Okay. Maybe the last few Christie's auctions have been a bust and the last Damien Hirst sale arrived as dead as one of his sharks, but the art economy is still flourishing on fashionable chests everywhere. Currency of Color, the crafty, high-end t-shirt brand that troupes great works of art with Postmodern abandon, is bringing familiar images out of the museums and auction houses onto the street. Created by partners Francisco Serrano and Tanner McAuley (godson of noted art/carnality appreciator Bob Guccione), the collection boasts graffitied George Washingtons and Baroque cherubs—the perfect cure for the dip in the art market.

Available at Atrium. For more information go to www.currencyofcolor.com.
