Reed Space hosted an event for the US Premier of Graniph on Friday, April 6. Graniph is a very cool, reasonably priced Japanese brand with over 100 different t-shirt designs. Each design is unique and is limited to 1000 pieces per design and is never repeated for reproduction.
According to Melanie Feindt, Art Director for Graniph, the shirts are walking galleries for the artistsÃ¢Â€Â™ work. 30% of the designs are from in-house designers, 30% are from Japanese artists / copywriters, 30% are from artists around the world The other 10% are chosen from designs submitted to Graniph. The artist whose work is chosen gets a profile introduction on GraniphÃ¢Â€Â™s website as well as links to their website.
Graniph believes in networking between famous and non-famous artists around the world and collaborations are done depending on the quality of the art.
With over 50 shops in Japan, Graniph hopes to gain American fans and will have a two-month run at Reed Space, NYC.
