Painstakingly painted by Viva! staffer and artist Philip Downs, these intimate animal portraits beckon us to look into the eyes of each animal, to see them as magnificent and not mere food on our plates. Painted over a course of four months using inspiration from Viva!’s vault of animal photography, each portrait tells a story; the proud Cockerel a rescue – now happily resides at an animal sanctuary in the English countryside.
Using a special printing process, the artists’ original artwork is blown-up and heat-transferred across the front half of the t-shirt (including half of the sleeves) for an arresting 3D visual effect. The tee itself is bright white and made from a strong but silky poly blend, so colours remain rich and won’t fade over time.
