NEW SHINTARO KAGO T-SHIRT

As most of you probably recall, our atrocity guru Shintaro Kago had his first European gallery show earlier this spring at the K-SPACE Gallery in Amsterdam.

I was in touch with the organizers and staff at the gallery leading up to the Kago exhibit, and I heard anecdotally that some of the visitors to the show name-checked Same Hat and the scanlations by Anonymous K as their reason for showing up to check it out(!?). As a thanks for the posts, they sent along this RADICAL shirt from the show, which I just got in the mail last week!

(detail) In the eye...


... and out the brain stem!


In addition to being totally fresh in and of itself, there's a K-SWISS tag on the bottom of the shirt. Only in Amsterdam, right? Major THANKS again to the K-SPACE Gallery (and VICE) for all their work promoting Mr. Kago.

@jaclyn: I got the impression that it was just a promo shirt they printed in-house and weren't selling anywhere. But folks who went to the gallery in person might have more insight :)

@bryan: i agree. I think it might be the first t-shirt i ever get TAILORED just bc it's too big and too cool to be not worn
