The debut collaboration between Ardentees and Gonzalo Bènard sees them create four exclusive t-shirts which feature photographs by Gonzalo Bènard. The collections of four unique graphic tees are limited to 100 pieces worldwide. Each exclusive shirt comes with its own individually numbered woven tag sewn on and an individually numbered hang tag.
The designs for the t-shirts come from highly acclaimed Lisbon-based photographer Gonzalo Bènard who explores the power and influence of memory in his work. Living and working in Spain, Portuguese born artist Gonzalo Bènard lets his expressions and creativity flow by ignoring distractions like colors, backgrounds and clothing and instead he plays with light, emotions and people. As a child Gonzalo Bènard would nap in front of Hieronymous Bosch paintings through the years spent living and studying at a Tibetan monastery-school, from this he uses his personal experience to create highly imaginative work. Gonzalo Bènard’s work can be found in both public and private collections worldwide, and his growing reputation has led to several high profile commissions.
