Infinitee Art Rock T-shirts – Tank Tops, Tie Dyes and Tapestries – Classic Rock n Roll stars and fantasy art tie dyed t-shirts inspired by Jimi Hendrix, Jim Morrison, John Lennon, Jerry Garcia, Bob Marley, Janis Joplin, Haight Ashbury and Led Zeppelin. Hand silk screened and painted with airbrush by artist Ralph Hawke Manis.
Infinitee Art Rock T-shirts is the brain child of artist Ralph Hawke Manis who started painting everything he could get under a paintbrush at a very early age. His first exhibit was at the age of four at the The Art Institute of Chicago Museum where he displayed an clay sculpture of a purple and pink polka-dot Elephant??? (Hey, he was only four!) Ralph has moved on to much bigger and better things in the art world and has created a very successful Website Infinitee Designs aimed at educating aspiring as well as established artists in computer digital art, illustration, 3D modeling and animation. You can see much of his recent and past work there as well.
The tapestries are a new addition to the Infinitee brand collection that are produced by our friends at Gypsy Rose with my artwork and we are very pleased with the quality of the material and printing!
As an artist who was well known in the “Village” Ralph chose not to involve himself with the mundane aspects of everyday business. Instead, he would hang out in the clubs listening to music and creating art. This period in his life resulted in making staff shirts for Jimi Hendrix’ Electric Ladyland Studios, promo shirts for numerous rock and roll bands, and a show at NYC’s hot spot The Limelight. Entrenched in rock and roll and influenced by his figure drawing sessions, this period resulted in the creation of many of Ralph’s finest works of the rock and roll legends.
I have always been intrigued by the concept of “infinity” and have spent many hours pondering it’s endless wonders so, having a T-shirt business with the name “INFINITEE” just seemed perfect.
Needless to say a very bright light bulb went off in my head and the same night I ran into Phil Brown and Mikio who where welling their wild tie dyes and beautiful artwork printed with silk screen. We were all in awe of each others work and became instant friends for life.
Livin’ on the open road, what a long strange trip it’s been and still is… While following the Grateful Dead and other great bands around for 20 years or so, had it’s ups, downs and all around’s but generally it was the most fun a person can have on the planet! A lot of the time was spent hardly touching the planet with all that wild and crazy, dancing foolishness.
