New Impressionist Collection for 2011

Although it seems to be the least popular of the lines, the Impressionist Collection started this whole Safari Brand hand-painted t-shirt thing. In the beginning, there was no expressions nor nationalities, & especially no publications. It was most definitely all about impressions. There actually was no brand at all, the main attraction was t-shirts splattered with abstract paintings, which caught the attention of many on-lookers. This was half the reason why it's named Impressionist. Because people were impressed by the artwork! So until this day, I admit that the Impressionist Collection is the pure base of  Safari Brand.

And for this year, the inspiration behind the designs turned out to be geometrical shapes. Which is very strange, for that I flunked Geometry and also made an extra effort to never make it up in Summer school. The good thing is that there was no need to find any corresponding heights or surface areas of a Parallelogram while making these shirts. So back to the fun stuff, this year we've added a few new designs to start things off. Here's a close look at what's in store.

First up is Zaramid.

Next in line is El X.

A fairly large hand-painted X marks the spot on this one.

Like all the other Impressionist shirts, El X features Metallic paint which shimmers under light.

And the 3rd addition to the collection, Donnegg.
Hand-painted design


As you can see, all the designs have a basic geometrical shape, but contain a great amount of detail on their surface.



The 4 step process used to hand-paint these designs explains the more than average price per shirt.

You will also be able to mix & match your desired color & design. So for example, if you want an El X design with Red paint on a Black shirt instead, you will have the option to do so.
