Mr Horsehead T-shirts and Lady Pants has originated from the work of concept artist Mr Horse Head.
Mr Horse Head in a similar vein to the DADA art movement aims to shock and deconstruct what he feels to be a claustrophobic society and art world. To challenge modern day concepts of reality in an anarchic manner in attempts to cause a reaction.
The concept of Mr Horse Head artwork on the T-shirt and Lady Pants was part of an Open Call for artists to exhibit at Artworks3 Launch in March 2017 and as part of Mr Horse Head final year creative practice and professional development.
