Title:
Disappearing Green

Author:
Adam Dube

Description:
This is a hand painted, reverse dyed, vintage / secondhand rugby shirt with artwork meant to mimic British Isles rugby uniforms of the 19th century. Color was removed from the fabric using environmentally safe methods (not chlorine bleach) to indicate the environmental impact of global textile manufacture & waste. The artwork is a functional, wearable garment and is a reinterpretation of what "streetwear" can be. New make garments have a disastrous impact, so I only create on repurposed items. The melancholic expression on such bright, familiar iconography begs a deeper investigation into the devastation directly cause & accelerated by fashion brands across the globe.
