Filmmaker and artist Nick Egan has been shaping fashion since the punk movement – from his Sex Pistols album cover, to Ramones t-shirts and Vivienne Westwood collections. Recently, t-shirt company 2k by Gingham approached Nick to use his artwork for their line, and soon after his union jack image was hanging in the window of the renowned boutique, Colette, in Paris. Their shirts are pieces of art, carried in galleries, museums, and the highest fashion markets.
Now Royal/T is exhibiting East Village West, a collection of art, photography, and fashion “celebrating California pop-culture and Hollywood’s influence on New York City’s neo-Dada art movement.” Nick’s shirts are among the merchandise and he helped kick off the opening reception.
It was a night filled with live art, New Wave makeovers, and doughnuts. The exhibit and 2k popup shop runs through January 10th.
