Thanks Alot is a textile art production studio that sells handmade functional-fashion and streetwear garments in New York City.
Growing up in New York City, the Subway was a vein to the rest of the city. Neither curfew, nor lack of $2.50 could stop the exploration of this unique, contrasting metropolis.
Traveling the distinct neighborhoods of New York City became an obsessive study.
A passionate skateboarder & artist, I saw a unique style being curated & created by those around me as they combined pieces from their different interests. A graff artist who skated would wear cargos for various reasons, a techie would have the cutting edge backpacks, side-bags and waist-bags for their gear. I became fascinated in streetwear as an eclectic form of art within itself.
Having studied in school as well as on my own, I learned screen printing, chemical printmaking, sewing, photography, graphic design, animation, and other skills. Without one project to house these techniques under, I sought to develop a business model that would combine everything-under-the-sun, and build a platform for artists near and far to collaborate and showcase their art to the world. Thanks Alot NYC is a tribute to the genuine appreciation of the opportunities afforded, and the sarcastic relief from the struggles of the big city that I experienced and encountered growing up and living in New York Goddam City. The greatest city on the planet, SO NICE THEY NAMED IT TWICE! Tweet #thanksalotnyc
