“In The Streets” w/ J. Grant Brittain Product Release Event
REPORTED BY Arkitip, Inc., 16, February 2017
FACT. & Arkitip have partnered to bring a six part teeshirt capsule collection of 80’s based, street focused skateboard photography from legendary lensman – J. Grant Brittain.
We dug into his back catalog and found these iconic images which we think exemplify the power, style and creativity of the scene in that era. Using the images as a canvas, we asked Grant to tell a story in his own words and handwriting, which we applied over each image to complete the design. The finished multi-layered designs are bold, colorful and potent.
The heavyweight teeshirt fabric colors are all custom, 100% produced in Los Angeles.
Please join us for the launch event February 22nd from 7:00 – 10:00PM.

Dan Covert ‘Besides’ Screen Prints
REPORTED BY Arkitip, Inc., 23, January 2017
We are proud to announce a series of 6 prints from artist Dan Covert.
‘I wanted to explore reconfiguring the 25 abstract shapes from my Queue print into smaller compositions. The resulting 6 super limited run screen prints titled Besides Volume 1 to 6 are an analog manifestation of the digital versioning I do as part of my creative process.’ – Dan Covert
About the artist: Dan Covert is an artist who lives in Brooklyn, New York. He began to experiment with painting and woodworking as a way to reconnect with making. Since then, he has developed a graphic language of organic and decisive forms. His work explores structuring and ordering these abstract shapes so they appear composed yet spontaneous. Dan is as interested in negative space as he is the positive, while he continues to develop new forms and compositions, using both analog and digital processes.
These print editions are available for sale online at Arkitip, thank you for the interest and support.
Arkitip No. 0062, Ello
REPORTED BY Arkitip, Inc., 6, December 2016
We are proud to announce our latest issue edition with Ello.
Sometimes you just get on a bike and ride – together.
For nearly 15+ years Arkitip has meant what’s there on the edge of culture, what’s there that you love but you haven’t yet discovered – what’s about to happen next. Ello couldn’t think of a better partner in its quest to support creators everywhere, by building an e-commerce and publishing platform that provides visibility, influence and opportunity for the world’s creatives.
So together we rode to – Here is What You Have, This is What You Hold.
We don’t think art is meant to be viewed alongside ads for hamburgers or hybrids. Ephemeral as it may be, an online showcase for this work didn’t seem enough, so we decided that printing a newspaper gave this project the respect and permanence it deserves. What Arkitip provides offline, Ello does online. It’s a place where members share a positive community and come to collaborate, build their audience, or just be.
This shared destination is one that values creators because it puts the emphasis on moving the world forward through creativity first. It’s one that Arkitip x Ello pedal together.
Arkitip & Ello, have teamed up to showcase 40 brilliant artists who are currently sharing their work on Ello. To further promote some of the best and brightest Ello contributors, we conducted an online juried art exhibition.
Ello members were selected by jury for the final online exhibition grouping. The work of these selected artists are what you ‘have’ here, the 62nd issue edition of Arkitip.
This edition was made possible with generous support from Ello.
Aleksandr Smirnov, Alencar Loch, Andrea Manzati, Andrew De Francesco, Brooke Reidt, Bruno Candiotto, Cy Tone, Daina Hodgson, Dan Covert, Dario Raspudic, Dave Towers, David Esquviel, Dragos Ioneanu, Dyanna Dimick, Hildegarde Handsaeme, Jamie Kripke, Jenniffer Omaitz, Joe Castro, Kaiho Yu, Lance Austin Olsen, LEEMO, Leo Ureña, Luke Ramsey, Makoto Takigawa, Maude Turgeon, Mina Wright, Misa Yamamoto, Monique de Brock Bol, Nathan Head, Nathan Ishar, Ned Evans, Nicolas Monterrat, Nicole Xu, Nihil Minus, SD Evans, Susannah van der Zaag, The Strohls, Thomas Park, Will Patlove.

Dan Covert ‘Queue’ Screen Print
REPORTED BY Arkitip, Inc., 4, November 2016
We are proud to announce the release of a new screen print with artist Dan Covert.
This 18 x 24 In. piece titled ‘Queue’ is based on a gouache painting the artist created exclusively for Arkitip.
Dan Covert is an artist who lives in Brooklyn, New York. He began to experiment with painting and woodworking as a way to reconnect with making. Since then, he has developed a graphic language of organic and decisive forms. His work explores structuring and ordering these abstract shapes so they appear composed yet spontaneous. Dan is as interested in negative space as he is the positive, while he continues to develop new forms and compositions, using both analog and digital processes.
Dan’s work is all about order and obsession, and with this print he methodically drew abstract forms from his language of shapes until they felt balanced, yet active.
Each print is signed and numbered and available for purchase now. Thank you for the support.
