Gestift's style, clearly influenced by popular Japanese mangas and even the American cartoon 'Care Bears', really stands out. His work, although drenched with graffiti characteristics, also has a naive, almost childish style. His big-eyed sweet-looking characters, mostly combined with porn and violence, are very popular, especially among younger crowds.
The world-famous producer Junkie XL is a proud owner of one of Gestift's shirts. You can make a similar one with the help of the artist himself.
Gestift will give a short presentation about his work. He will reveal the technical secrets behind his imagery and explain how to make a stencil. After that, it is up to you: we have a table full of pens, markers, textile paint, spray paint and, of course, a free t-shirt where you can start working on. The workshop takes about three hours.
