Painting a T-Shirt, has it been done before? The answer is no. This has never been done. Jeff Johns was the first to do it.
Actually, painting on a shirt has probably been done a million times, but what this particular shirt captures is the essence of fine art brought to life in an entirely different dimension. While it looks great on a canvas and an over-sized print, this study was primarily focused to capture this artwork in an unusual fashion.
So why is this a $4,000 t-shirt? Well, the answer is quite simple. The $4,000 shirt is an abstract example of the pricing strategy in the world of fine art. The more you pay for a piece, the more value it has to you as an individual as well as other consumers who see that other people have purchased these products at a high price point.
Will I sell this shirt for $4,000? Who knows, I’ll probably lose it tomorrow.
