ROOTOTE x ARTIST Collaboration Vol.1

A tote bag that many people use on a daily basis.
Considering such a tote bag as a medium, through collaboration with various artists, we will send art to the world. Art collaboration project by ROOTOTE.
The first is Ushio Shinohara, a contemporary artist.

This is the silk screen original that will be the next tote bag. 30-40 years ago, when I came to New York, I started making posters right after I came to New York, and I saw posters of the Tiger from the Ringling Brothers circus all over New York, and I thought it would be cool. It feels like a downtown tiger. This one is called "Tiger Roar" (Title of the silkscreen), isn't it?

I've never seen a tiger before, so I had a lot of imagination and came up with this amazing thing. "Tiger Roars" is a masterpiece of silkscreen that was made with Ushio Shinohara's image of the tiger, the king of the dense forest.

 I'm happy to say that I'm going to burn this into my ROOTOTE bag and go around the city. It's like the artist's spirit runs through town. Corona came the day before yesterday. Stare at me and tell me to bite you.

Burning with hope, "Tiger barks", this is absolutely cool. Rather than having my spirit beautifully displayed in a bag or in a gallery, even if I get muddy, I'm the king of the jungle running around town, Yamate, Shitamachi, and so on. nice to meet you.

In this collaboration, Ushio Shinohara made a feature when he visited New York for the first time, "Tiger Barks". One piece boldly silk-screen printed on TALL, which can be said to be ROOTOTE's signature, and one tote bag containing his masterpiece boxing paint and "Tiger Barking" will be released.
Limited order production up to 500 pieces of each kind. The product will be sewn on with a signature and edition proof label by Ushio Shinohara.
Eight plates were used to express the power and colors of the work with silkscreen.
By layering his unique colors, depth is created, and the force of the tiger that seems to jump out at any moment is reproduced.
