They’re based out of Detroit (Inner State Gallery [formally 323East]) and got their head firmly in the game.


Nelson Mandela Tribute By Phil Akashi


Photo from Phil Akashi’s website

I’ve been wanting to do a tribute piece to Nelson Mandela for awhile now (the best idea I’ve had so far for a t-shirt is “A T-shirt Does No Justice To This Man’s Legacy”). Lucky for us, I’ve been beat to the punch in the tribute department. Artist Phil Akashi did a mural in Shanghai of the legend by donning boxing gloves and punching a wall 27,000 times with a Chinese/Taoist ink and the characters 自由/”Freedom.”

Read about the location, technique, and watch video @Good Magazine and the artist’s website.
