Who is the artist Jeremy Fish? According to his friend, Aesop Rock, “At first glance, Fish’s images seem to be rooted in an alternate world — a world where gnomes travel via saddled dachshund-back and birds of all nations hatch adorned with the heads and hairstyles of every human stereotype imaginable,” said the Portland-based indie rapper. “The bold, precise outlines give his ideas an immediate impact, but it’s the aftertaste that really cuts deep. Everything comes with a story. I have never known Jeremy to create something without a reason for it to exist and an accompanying tale.”
That’s exactly why skateboard brand Element teamed up with the San Francisco-based artist, placing his “Zipper Series” on the board for summer 2015. “Exploring the theme of evolution and authenticity, his whimsical designs have been re-tooled for our hardwood series and apparel collection,” says the brand. On one t-shirt, and unzipped fish reveals a bottle with the Element logo on it. On a skateboard a bear is unzipped, revealing a tree and a dog. Another t-shirt shows an unzipped circle with a bird wearing a wizard’s hat. The pieces are wearable, but also fun and quirky. So if you’re looking for some t-shirts to update your wardrobe, or a new skateboard, or even just shoes and swim trunks, take a look at Jeremy Fish’s collaboration with Element.
