イタリアのwebマガジンで世界のサブカルチャー、streetwearを紹介しているThe Maxiemillion (from Italy) がPARADOX HIROTTON紹介してくれました cheers! http://www.themaxiemillion.com/paradox_big_horn_sheep_by_hirotton/
Paradox is a blast from the past with a modern twist. Where else do you find authentic skate punk graphics nowadays? Hirotton is the man behind all this. Its creative outlet serves to this Japanese artist as a way to channel his art into what he likes: chaos, anarchy, friendship and skateboarding. In his catalog that was enclosed with this Sheep raglan t-shirt you had his designs but also a piece (written in Japanese, of course) on punk, skateboarding and squats. This is the blast from the past that I’m talking about: that xeroxed fanzine feeling that is lost over the years, killed by the internet. This is not the first time that Hirotton art is featured on The Maxiemillion. He is the man behind that graphic of Confusion magazine t-shirt that we saw here a couple of months ago. My jaw dropped when I first saw this graphics that is so contemporary without even trying to. In a moment where little chicks rock skulls on their cheap big corporations tees, a raglan of this kind makes sense and if you allow me to say it, it’s mad real. The art of this little big skater (little in numbers and big in inspiration) is intricated and overcharged with an endless amount of details. Traits from his pen keep on hitting paper and what you see represents that early vibe of British punk like no other artist that I saw recently. Putting his design to fabric involved a neon green shadow giving extra flavor to this raglan tee. F**k the system then: cop this t-shirt directly from Paradox!
