In anticipation of what is undoubtedly a monumental year for Britain, Brutus proudly launches their ‘BRITISH ILLUSTRATORS PROJECT’. Brutus has started commissioning young British artists to draw directly onto their famous ‘Trimfit’ shirts. Using their own unique styles each artist will interpret what Brutus means to them.
The Brutus Trimfit shirts have been worn proudly since 1966 as a reflection of personal style and youth culture, a dedication to a particular look, following of specific sounds and an obsession with fit and detail.
As a part of Brutus’ testament to nurturing and encouraging young British talent, Arran Gregory is the first artist commissioned for the project. He graduated from Chelsea College of Art in 2009 and has gone on to become one of the most sought after talents in London’s creative world.
He describes his work as a battle between maximalist and minimalism, which can be seen in the simplicity whilst extraordinarily intricate detail of his drawings or the clarity of form while huge scale of his hand carved sculpture.
