Creeping out of the shadows after almost twelve months off, All Caps Artist, Lex has returned with some bangin’ tees for the Portsmouth massive.
Lex had featured on Strong Island many times before and so his cartoon style may well look familiar. This time the Portsmouth artist has taken on something new with a fresh ‘solo’ T-shirt design inspired by his childhood love of Star Wars movies 4, 5 and 6, along with some awesome embroidered All Caps logo hats.
Lex has a long and varied history collaborating with some of Southsea’s finest artists and is proud to be part of such a vibrant and inspiring city.
Graphically trained at the University of Portsmouth and with over twenty years fine-tuning his design skills, Lex has now set himself the new challenge of focusing on his more illustrative style, inspired by his love of Hanna-Barbera cartoons, quirky movies and old skool hip hop.
Now working with the team at Southsea’s favourite screen printing studio, Sea Dog, it seemed only natural that his new work would appear across the front of a t-shirt rather than on a canvas, gallery wall or disused building. The tees themselves come in various colour combinations on white or black t-shirts and in various sizes. Priced at £15, these limited edition, hand printed tees are a steal and reflect a new direction for the artist.
With a brand new website coming soon, this really is an exciting and busy time for Lex with all sorts set for 2019. Watch this space and follow Lex on Instagram for news and updates as it happens. To pick up yours contact Lex via his Instagram page.
