THE DENIM ARTIST
ArtMakers | April 10, 2018
Whether it was Piet Mondrian who inspired Yves Saint Laurent in the 60’s or Gucci’s recent revolution with art murals up everywhere, fashion and art have mated for years. Some artists use empty walls as their canvas (hello Banksy!) while others consider negative spaces on objects. But, there is one thread that stays in common: Art is what you want to see! Capturing this emotional sentiment and finding her own canvas in the threads of a denim jacket, Aparna Avarasala created DENIMRUSH. Born in Cincinnati, Ohio, Aparna always had a creative inkling, whether it was painting or having “weird” ideas. While her parents didn’t allow her to attend an arts school, she graduated from the New York School of Interior Design in 2016 with a close enough match, Interior Design.
RADICHE (noun): pronounced as “rah-dish” since we like to get fancy!
Besides it being an awesome vegetable, the radish is known in its social circle as a friendly, resilient, diverse and raw fellow. It’s everything that defines our Makers.
