Artist of the moment……..Street Art Collective Hygienic Dress League

 

 

Hygienic Dress League is a street art collective based out of Detroit, Michigan.

The company was started as an art project by artists Steve and Dorota Coy. Below a great interview with the duo talking about what inspires them and their artwork:

Price range information: Sorry none available.

With the concepts of marketing, branding, and advertising Hygienic Dress League reminds me a great deal of Andy Warhol when he first moved to the factory. Warhol at the time was just making his foray into mass marketing with his reproductions of the Brillo Box.

Hygienic Dress League also tried to sell shares in their collective. This reminded of when the artist Thomas Kinkade successfully listed his company on the N.Y.S.E.
