Ok. So after this, we’ll stop it with the Joel Birch stuff. Promise…
Joel was in town recently for his show “Hopeless & Romantic” and got busy on a number of projects. His exhibition, a handful of walls and finally, the 3rd installament of our “The Hours” Limited Edition T-Shirt Series.
The Hours Limited Edition T-Shirt Series is an ongoing collaboration project between The Hours, Element Skateboards and Aisle6ix Industries. Artists are invited by The Hours to design their own The Hours shirt graphic, the artwork is then hand screen printed in Sydney by Aisle6ix Industries onto an edition of 50 t-shirts made by Element Skateboards.
Joel’s tee was for sale at the opening, and we only have a bunch left. If you’d like one of them, I’d suggest getting in quick.
Joel Birch opened his show “Hopeless & Romantic” at The Tate last week and the gallery quickly packed out with fans snapping up his originals and prints that were on show. This is Joel’s second Sydney show and demonstrates his unique style of typography and continued use of black and white. Keeping things simple, but evolving his work to be more and more detailed with each collection.
Along with this new body of work, we (The Hours) launched our next series of limited edition t-shirts. Joel created an exclusive font piece that was on sale at the gallery, and will be available online from tomorrow.
For most people, ANZAC day means a day off. A day to hit the pub and maybe play a little two up. For myself, Roach and Joel Birch, we decided to give the Foveaux Street wall a much needed overhaul. Our phrase “What a wonder full day to go painting” is meant to encourage people that any day is good day to paint. Lucky for us, ANZAC day was about the most perfect Sydney weather i’ve experienced in a while. Get out and paint something!
Joel Birch is a member of the Hours family and is one of the most talented typographers around. His latest show “Hopeless & Romantic” demonstrates why he’s known for his bold and unique type pieces. This new body of work is a step up for Joel, having treated these pieces with intense detail and line work. Get down tomorrow night and check it out, and STAY TUNED for the announcement of a few projects we are doing with Joel this week in Sydney.
Tonight, Joel Birch is in town to open his show “Under the Influence” at China Heights Gallery. Joel is a member of The Hours family and is one super talented artist. See a couple of sneak peek shots below and more information on the Facebook event here. See you there tonight!
