I am always amazed when artists find a completely new and genuinely interesting way to capture life. Even more impressive when it’s done in a way that is commercially appealing, which this is quickly proving to be.
In 2013 The Berlin based art collective known as Raubdruckerin, or “Pirate Printer”, began making printed T-shirts

from manhole covers, drains or any number of urban adornments.
The team trolls the streets of Berlin in search of raised surfaces that will transfer the ink adequately and provide an image that captures the city’s spirit.
Today they can barely keep up with demand for their T’s, Totes and hoodies. And their work spans several cities, including Paris, Lisbon and Amsterdam.
