Where everything started and why
I was in a museum, relaxing my legs in the heart of a large, bright hall. Corridors and rooms spanned all around me, hosting timeless paintings, the work of hundreds of artists, yet my eyes were fixed on the painting before me. "How old are you?" I thought "Three, four hundred years?"
There was, in truth, nothing special about that painting. And yet... why couldn't I look away?
It portrayed a woman, who had her back to me, holding a child's hand as they walked along the riverbank. Their destination was a small village, sloped on a hill and lying in the distance in its burnt orange and ocher tones. That woman, I wondered... Who was She? Where was She taking the child? Was there a home or something else awaiting them in the village?
I knew nothing of the hand whose brush painted the canvas; I knew nothing of the painting itself or the history behind it. And yet it spoke to me, and I wondered about the story it wanted to tell; exactly like you all are now picturing this story in your head.
Everyone has their personal vision of the little village, even with the few words I used. Each of you tried to picture me in the museum and each of you has a different sequence of images of this story in your head, different interpretations. That's the beauty of art.
Art is molded by our eyes. Therein lies its beauty.
Drapenn’s goal is to gather drawings by artists all over the world and reimagine them in products, as well as creating original stories for each of them, intended to stimulate the imagination.
What We want is to help talented artists establish themselves in a world where technology has eclipsed hand drawing little by little, and where finding motivation gets harder by the day.
All our products are handmade in Italy using top quality organic cotton. To make them even more unique, only a limited set will be made of each drawing. The numbered label sewed onto each t-shirt is the testament of their authenticity.
Drapenn won't forget the environment: that's why We chose a GREEN policy to makes sure all the links in our production chain are studied using a mindset that puts Earth first. For example, some of our products will be made of recycled fibers.
