OOF RHYS COREN JERSEY Multi
UMBRO OOF RHYS COREN JERSEY
When is a football shirt more than just a football shirt? When it's a genuine limited edition work of art. For their first collaboration, OOF x UMBRO asked two of the UK's most exciting contemporary artists - Juno Calypso and Rhys Coren - to create unique pieces of art, but instead of working with paint, photography or sculpture, they're using the football shirt as their medium.
Every shirt comes with a signed, numbered certificate of authenticity. We wanted to make the idea of owning original limited edition artworks accessible to everyone, not just the art elite: now you get to be an art collector without having to wear a turtleneck.
About Rhys Coren:
Rhys Coren uses his art to create an ultra-rhythmic visual world, filled with clashing primary colours, cartoon bubbles, modernist grids and countless nods to rave and disco culture. Across painting, animation, silkscreen, carpet, sound and performance, Coren has made a body of work that's as unique as it is pretty. Like the Bauhaus designing the set for a kids' TV show about acid house, this is intense and seriously bold art.
His shirt for the OOF x Umbro collaboration is no different, made of stark geometric shapes and bursting with blue, yellow and red: it's floral, primary colour modernism that makes for one of the summeriest football shirts you'll ever see.
