Artist Feature: Vosq Co

We are excited to share another artist spotlight: Vosq Clothing Co.  Our pal and the owner, Sean, explained, "Vosq Co. was founded in concept, on the grounds of the Pechanga Indian Reservation. The theme then was to create a brand my family and ancestors would be proud of, as well as a brand that my friends and community could relate to." 

It's always a pleasure to work with Sean - he's got this nice and easy-going positive energy, always down to create an exclusive design with us and partner up with projects. 

So, when I asked him to create us something, he did not fail. He sent along this World Tour Power Pow Wow Tee (see below).

He explained, "This particular shirt design inspiration came while I was listening to The Black Keys and texting my homeboy Tim (2oolman) Hill from A Tribe Called Red about his upcoming tour schedule, and I began kicking around the idea of how cool it would be to design a concert tee around a worldwide powwow tour.

I am continually inspired by other SoCal artists and locals, who each share a natural creative expression that could only from from being in a place as enriching as Southern California, which has become a melting pot of countercultures like skate, surf, punk, and hip-hop."

A lot of his designs meld those cool various elements. Above, his Moonrise tank features his logo of a feather and needle in the shape of a V - these elements are part of his identity as a Native American clothing company owner. The t-shirt above was made in honor of the great Chief Red Cloud of the Oglala Lakota and everything he stood for, including Red Cloud's statement “We do not want riches, we want peace and love.”

Click this link to view his entire online shop, which includes tanks, tees, hats, sweatshirts, and more. We love his play with color and design and his attention to details that are hard to capture on camera, but look killer in person (like the tiny ink details on the drum for the powwow tee below).

Be sure to follow him on Instagram and check out his website. With shops and galleries restricted, artists are facing new challenges in sharing their work, and one of the best ways to share art is to share it with your friends and networks.
