Tokyo Art Beat Artist T-Shirts


Attentive readers might remember Tokyo Art Beat when we covered them way back in 2005. For the uninitiated, TAB is a website covering art events, reviews and creative jobs in the Japanese capital. The free service is run as a nonprofit, but occasionally they offer a limited run of exclusive t-shirts designed by local artists. The third edition is currently on sale, and it features designs by Alexander Gelman, Shantell Martin (above left), the Dainippon Type Organization, Ayako Ookubo (above right) and Tomoko Konoike (above center). Shirts are currently discounted to ¥2500 (about $24) and available until the end of May.

Additionally, a New York version of the site recently launched, serving the same essential function with an NYC-centric perspective.
