Now in its 10th season, UT brings out the big guns and taps on the hottest graffiti artists around. According to creative director Nigo, "Along with my design team, we come up with a list of individuals and artists we want to work with. I transaite what I like and who I like into the design output so that others can appreciate it too."

That said, working with T-shirts is not all that easy as one would assume. "There's little wiggle room with this garment so what's printed on it is the most important thing," stresses Nigo.

Up first is American artist ABSTRACT EXPRESSIONIST FUTURA, who is lauded for his abstract creations, geometric forms, and expressive style that's unique and unmistakable. Here, the tees come in trusty white or black and features stylized scribbles, typography, and an assortment of sketches.

Finally, we have André Saraiva, who is not only a graffiti artist, but a restaurateur and hotelier as well. He's known for his use of pastels, particularly pink, as well as his alter-ego, Mr. André, who usually pops up in his works, bringing an extra dose of fun and mischief. All of that and more can be found in this range of tees, breathing new life to what is perhaps the most utilitarian item in everyone's closet.
