Check out this striking sculptural design by American conceptual artist, John Baldessari. He is known for combining both text and photography and what Baldessari likes to do is explore the ideas of communication.John Baldessari’s sculpture, Beethoven’s Trumpet (With Ear) Opus # 133 (2007), was featured in Saatchi Gallery’s exhibition ‘The Shape of Things to Come: New Sculpture.’ The artist said “I was asked to do a retrospective show in 2007 in Bonn with all the works I’d done about music. Bonn is the birthplace of Beethoven”. Baldessari even went into the home of Beethoven where the cabinet full of ear trumpets inspired him for his sculptural piece.
Saatchi used our custom t shirt printing services to showcase Baldessari’s image of the sculpture which was screen printed onto over 200 Earth positive organic men’s (product code EP01). The t shirts coincided with the exhibition allowing art lovers etc. to buy them at £15 per tee.The design is far from the typical straight forward slogan or images on the majority of high street tees but it holds stronger depth about the meaning of the sculpture. It makes people look into the t shirt in more detail, trying to work out what the image actually conveys.T shirt screen printing is great for high quality, long lasting prints and is most suitable for medium to large quantities.
