The technique used by Sam Scarpulla to create this artwork is by utilizing his hands on paper cut style. No computers where used in the making of this design.
To create the negative Sam cut his drawing straight out of black paper.
This cut-out we “burned” on to the screen creating a positive to print on to the shirt using white ink.
This is not an abstract design but a drawing of a working machine Sam has build. It is a energy multiplier and it provides a free flow of electricity.
Used in a evil way you could hook up an unspecified amount of multipliers and create a nuclear bom.
The use of this infinite power up to you!
On the front of the shirt you can recognize a stylized bird which you can also find incorporated on the packaging box. This is inspired by a painting his father had made way back when Sam was a kid. Over the years this bird has come to symbolize freedom. And is now the family emblem.
This style can be described as Neo Tribalism.
