Candy Paint: Artwork by Perth Artist Ash Schmitt
If you’re at all familiar with the modern graphic artwork of Ash Schmitt, you’ll know he has a thing for Kanye. Names like Ye, Action Bronson, the LA Lakers, Trump (yes, even that bloke), Robert De Niro, John Travolta, Napoleon Dynamite and Dennis Cometti and more pop up with entertaining regularity… so much so we couldn’t resist asking him to design some wine labels for us.
Just before Xmas 2018, all four designs landed in all Liquor Barons stores statewide.
If you’re not familiar with his work… get on board – the guy is phenomenal. He is responsible for limited edition works for Feral Brewing (Shooter McGavin’s Breakfast IPA), album covers for Urthboy, Tarntulina Jolie, designs for Livid Skateboards and way more – too many to mention. You can buy his limited edition works on tees, via the link in his Instagram bio. www.instagram.com/schmitt.com.au
