A dynamic duo of husband-and-wife artists is bringing their impressive art pieces to life one outfit at a time.
For couple Evan Hildebrandt and Alison Shepard-Hildebrandt, it has always been a dream to share their artwork with the masses and bring more beauty into the world. Over the years, they’ve created artwork and installments that grace the walls and halls of many impressive homes, businesses, and establishments. Now, their awe-inspiring artwork is expanding into fashion with their new clothing line, Abstract Art Swag.
Abstract Art Swag is made up of clothing pieces printed with the Hildenbrants’ artwork.
“We have really let art inform the clothing,” says Evan. “Each design is uniquely placed in the product. We really believe in the purity of art for design.” Combined, the two artists have almost 30 years of experience in the art industry. The price range of professional art can cost upwards of thousands of dollars. By placing it on versatile, everyday clothing, it is both affordable and enjoyed widespread.
All of Abstract Art Swag’s products are made with dependable, high-end materials. “Each one of our products are made with quality materials. Our manufacturer is located in Canada so we can ensure the pieces will be made close to home and with quality in mind,” says Evan. “The prints on the pieces never fade, even after multiple washes. We are really excited that our art will be able to be preserved, even on clothing.”
The process from the sketching board to the product is a unique process. The Hildenbrants tap into their creativity and design their artwork. The couple compliments each other with their individual strengths. Evan tends to gear his work towards a natural and organic aesthetic. For Alison, her strengths lie in floral oil paintings. Once the design is finalized, a high-resolution image is sent to the manufacturer. A 3D render of the image is produced, the team ensures the design falls right on the product, and it is ready to be worn.
“The process of launching this company and allowing our designs to speak for themselves has been amazing to watch,” says Evan. “Our hands are in every step of the process and it has been a great learning experience. We are so excited for our official launch coming soon and sharing our work with the world.”
