The winning design of The Pop Life Design Challenge, set up by Young Tate Online, has been made into this fabulous t-shirt.
The winning designer is Kayleigh Doughty whose Tee entitled ''Pop Life Deserves A Toast!'' was inspired by the artists shown in the Pop Life exhibition at the Tate Modern. Pop icons such as Keith Haring and Takashi Murakami's displays influenced the customization and colour, along with the well-known halftone pattern technique that is found displayed throughout Roy Lichtenstein's work. The toasters symbolize the everyday consumer product, along with the toast that pops up representing the energy and lifestyle of Pop Art that we all know and love.
Her tshirt design received this feedback from the judges:
''This design displays a high level of illustration, skill and innovation.''
''Good humour, irreverence and great colour also marks this design out, and they also picked out the aspects of POP life that best suited the T-shirt medium (Lichtenstein, Warhol, Murakami and Haring come to mind)''
''I also appreciated the links they made with aspects of the shows, while keeping the tee-shirt interesting and punchy in-itself, attractive piece of popular art that work like a good poster, immediately but also bear repeated views, as you discover more things the more you look.''
The design is an 8-color screen print on a soft black tshirt.
Men's sizes Medium, Large and Extra Large are available.
