Creating wearable art in the most literal of forms, local artist Jason Hazle recently launched Allusive Collections.
Featuring an assortment of artists from Sunshine Coast through to Lismore, the project seeks to promote up and coming talent using clothing as the canvas.
Hazle told CoastConfidential Allusive Collections will sell original artwork designs on both t-shirts and prints.
“A portion of each t-shirt or artwork sold will be go back to the original artist and help drive the local creative industry,” he said.
“I want to get away from the heavily branded aspect of t-shirts these days, while giving these artists the support they deserve.”
Looking to branch out the company beyond south east Queensland, Hazle said Allusive is always searching for more artists to get on board.
Allusive Collections will host their official opening exhibition and clothing launch in Burleigh May 21, featuing art, photography and live music.
