Along with many other people on the planet, Garry Davis had a collection of worn-out and almost unwearable Levis cluttering up the house that he didn’t want to throw out. This got Garry wondering what great artists of the past would have done with theirs (as Garry himself points out, some of them DID wear them).
Using the Levis as canvas, Garry created a series of paintings to breathe new life in to the iconic denim as you can see from the photos below. The pieces are created using acrylics and plaka paint, then tacked/mounted to 4 foot x 3 foot matt black plywood and finished with a light spray varnish.
