Participating artists include: Birds of Tokyo, Emma Louise, Bliss n Eso, The Presets and The Rubens.
Each of the Australian musicians were asked to choose a set of lyrics from their catalogue and then five international visual artists were asked to bring them to life in a unique visual style.
“This collaboration with MARCS is extremely exciting and a wonderful showcase of everything that is great about Australian music with t-shirts from local artists across a range of genres – from rock, dance and hip-hop right through to one of the country’s finest singer-songwriters” said Dan Rosen, CEO of the Australian Record Industry Association (ARIA).
The limited edition range of men’s and women’s T’s have been launched in time for Christmas and are being positioned as a perfect gift for music and design lovers.
“We are delighted to have united some of Australia’s most current musicians with some outstandingly creative visual artists for a great cause” said MARCS Creative Director Rachel Allen. “Support Act do wonderful work for the music industry and we’re thrilled this initiative will allow people to feel good about a Christmas purchase.”
No more than 1,000 of each design are on sale making the designs strictly limited.
Participating musicians generously gave their time in support of the charity Support Act.
The limited edition ARIA Band T’s are on sale in MARCS as well as in select David Jones stores.
