Critically acclaimed photographer Dana Lixenberg and Patta present their final instalment of their collaboration T-shirt series.
Amsterdam-born and New York-based Lixenberg studied photography at the
London College of Printing and the Gerrit Rietveld Academy in
Amsterdam. Lixenberg has exhibited extensively, several books of her
work have been published and over the years she has received countless
commissions from publications, such as Vibe, The New Yorker and Time.
Previously released t-shirts from the series include The Notorious
B.I.G., Tupac Shakur, Noam Chomsky, A Tribe Called Quest, PJ Harvey,
Master P, Aaliyah and Allen Ginsberg. Basically everyone dope in Hip Hop in the 90s.
The Patta x Dana Lixenberg Signature T-Shirt Series concludes with
Dana’s portrait of iconic West Coast rapper Too $hort at his mansion
in Atlanta, originally commissioned by Vibe magazine for their April
1996 issue. The second shirt features legendary poet, musician and
author Gil Scott-Heron who was visiting a live showcase for the Red,
Hot & Cool album in 1994. Dana seized the moment and got him in front
of the camera.

$hort and Gil Scott-Heron are the fifth and final set of a signature
collection of ten t-shirts featuring iconic personalities photographed
by Lixenberg, curated by Patta. Both shirts are available at Patta
