British 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 Patricia Field, and 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.”
A selection of pieces from the collection will be available to purchase online and made to order at www.bencopperwheat.com and www.patriciafield.com – and at a shop and meet the artist event Thursday June 21 at Patricia Field Gallery, 200 East Broadway, Suite 3D, New York, NY 10002.
