‘The future is in the frame #1.’ Kavir Mootoo, 2020. Hand-painted and -printed organic cotton and sweatshop-free T-Shirt. Unisex Medium. (*SOLD*)
This piece is from my new collection, ‘Choices’.
For the front, I did some work with bleach – rinsed and let it dry and then painted and printed a palm leaf.
On the back, I marked out an area hinting at an empty framed painting. This is to invite more work to be done in this space. Of course, work can be done anywhere.
The whole idea is that new looks be created over time instead of buying an actual new T-shirt. The owner can do this work themself, a designer can do an applique, another artist can lend their touch or I can do it.

Conventionally made cotton is very fertiliser and pesticide intensive and these chemicals wreak havoc on animal and plant life. As we become more mindful of our extensive impact on the planet, let’s be mindful of our choices.
