British, but NYC-based artist and designer Ben Copperwheat has released his new Rainbow Electric fashion collection and accompanying editorial spread, a vibrant, pop-culture-saturated exploration of his own personal journey through iconography, pattern, screenprinting, collage, and painting.
Copperwheat is represented by Emmy-winning Sex and the City costume designer / punk legend Patricia Field, has collaborated with brands including Calvin Klein and Gucci, and designed for celebrities like Boy George, Beyonce and Blue Ivy.
The artist’s new collection is a celebration of all things color clash and rainbow, to honor Pride month 2018, done in his signature “bright, often neon, rainbow colors and bold, graphic imagery.”
