Caroline Walls x Kowtow — November 2017
'Evocative feminine shapes and subtle colours of Melbourne based artist Caroline Walls' body of work first caught our eye in July 2017. With our common aesthetics embracing minimalism and a streamlined colour palette, we launched the process of a collaboration to adorn our Building Block basics. The concept is simple yet powerfully universal: in an world where women's bodies keep on being mistreated, we wanted to inspire confidence and empowerment by showcasing the works of an artist who puts the female body in focus.
Caroline's art is meticulous in that each piece is pared back to simple shapes and lines to create figures that are bold and fluid. We talk to Caroline about the collaboration, her creative process and political concerns.
The artworks are an abstract response to the female form titled Calling Out Of Context and This Must Be The Place. $20 of each Kowtow x Caroline Walls t-shirt will be donated to International Women's Development Agency (IWDA) to strengthen women's safety and security in the Asia Pacific.
