Robert Alonzi is a remarkable painter and sculptor from Liege in Belgium. A 67 year old, he worked in a slaughterhouse from the tender age of 14 until he was 42. During this time he quietly developed his art practice.
During July we hosted his very first UK show in-store - the first collaborator in our 'Canvas' art programme. As part of the show he used 10 of our Polycotton Coach Jackets as a canvas upon which to make some striking, wearable art.
These works are painted with acrylic so are not washable. Ideally they are worn in dry conditions, or hung as art pieces.
