2Create special edition t-shirts for Riotandco

We are excited to announce a unique collaboration between 2Create – Art Collaborations in New York City by Yoav Litvin and RIOTANDCO to produce a limited-edition series of t-shirts!

2Create – Art Collaborations in New York City sheds lights on the practice of cooperative creation in street art and graffiti- the rewards and challenges. The book focuses on two remarkable features of art; the processes of multiple mediums such as collage, murals and screen printing, and the complexities and beauty of the collaborative work between two people who comprise a unit that is greater than a sum of their parts.

But 2Create is more than a book on art. It is a beautifully designed document that presents the collaborative duo as the basic unit of a collective humanity in which empathy and collaboration trump disregard and domination. In an era of the cult of celebrity, war and climate change collective action is not only beneficial, it is necessary. 

In our limited edition series, we will present works by several graffiti and street artists from New York City, as well as the 2Create logo, designed by Dan Michman.
