Artist collaborations are a dime a dozen in fashion, but transgressive photographer Andres Serrano (if you’re not familiar with his controversial works like Piss Christ, perhaps you recognize him from Jay-Z’s Picasso Baby music video) was one of the last creatives we’d expect to see popping up in the mainstream market. So we were shocked to see Serrano team up with Altamont Apparel on a new range of T-shirts featuring some of his envelope-pushing images, including Piss Christ, Black Baby Jesus, America, and The Morgue. The coolest part is the accompanying video, which delves into Serrano’s methodology. “Sometimes art that is not completely understood is the best art of all, because it has a dynamic and push and pull,” he says in the short. “I like to find beauty in the most unexpected places.”
