I have some super exciting news! Junkprints is being carried at a brand new pop up shop Called SUPAFRIK in Toronto, and of course in none other than Kensington Market. 181 Augusta Ave. Toronto, Ontario, Canada M5T 2L4
Supafrik is an experimental pop-up concept. A blend of art exhibition and retail, Supafrik will showcase the work of artists and entrepreneurs that are inspired by Africa. Loosely curated around the theme of “Urban Contemporary Africana”, Supafrik will feature artwork and merchandise that re-contextualise and re-imagine traditional African aesthetics and tradition with a post-modernist eye. In addition to the Afrotropolis fashion collection by Chinedesign, Supafrik will be stocked with unique artwork, books, music, t-shirts, shoes furniture and home-ware collected by Chinedu throughout his travels in New York, London and Paris. Supafrik will also have social-media interactivity that will allow anybody with an internet connection to participate in some of the activities planned over the duration of the pop up shop such as the stylized photoshoot, book reading and design workshop.
BTW: They have the last editions of the Hairy Hair tees
. So if you slept on 'em while I had 'em in stock you can cop 'em here.
and one more thing, The Opening Party July 15, 2011 7:00 pm - 11:00 pm.
