Maw Boxing is so excited to have collaborated with three amazing artists to produce a summer capsule collection. Five new t-shirts designs by three of "of the moment artists" in London
Chris is an award-winning illustrator, muralist, animator, character designer and art director based in London.
His work ranges from minimalist graphic storytelling to intensely detailed illustration, working across a range of styles, methods and techniques to tailor his approach to each project. Ultimately, though, Chris’s work is rooted in creating inventive, humorous new worlds, and an ability to tell engaging stories.
In 2012 Chris was awarded a D&AD Yellow Pencil for his illustration work with Johnnie Walker in Shanghai. Most recently, he designed the characters for the TV mini series “Devil May Care” on SYFY, produced by PSYOP.
Josh Stika is a typographic artist based in South London and is best know for his use of witty slogans and vibrant colour schemes. Josh has painted as a large-scale mural artist for the past 20 years and is currently producing pieces of work that resemble traditional shop fascias.
As a commercial artist he has worked with the likes of Hoxton Hotel, Adidas, Nike, Fabergé and Smirnoff, to name a few. Josh continues to work both in the creative industries designing spaces and experiences for global brands and as an artist in his own right.
Joe Cruz is a visual artist, born in London in 1988. He graduated from Norwich School of Art in 2010 where he specialised in print making.
Cruz is recognised for his pastel portrait series where he juxtaposes found imagery and expressive mark making techniques. His work combines a mixture of techniques and inputs which seem to constantly be jostling for attention. He utilises a variety of office equipment in unorthodox ways, resulting in images that evoke a classical painting aesthetic through contemporary means.
Cruz had his first solo show at Gallery Common in Tokyo in 2018 and recently has completed projects for Hermès, Jacquemus and Comme des Garçons. He also regularly lectures at universities and has run client workshops in London, Paris, Tokyo and LA.
