Best Art T-Shirts

You may have seen artist Marlos E’van’s street-art-inspired paintings on buildings and fences around Nashville, or on the walls of The Red Arrow Gallery, Channel to Channel and the Frist Art Museum. But if you’ve ever seen E’van’s gold rings, colorful dreadlocks and black berets, you know he’s almost as concerned with fashion as he is with his paintings and sculptures. E’van married his two passions with a display of painted T-shirts at Julia Martin Gallery back in June. E’van and Martin created a socially distanced display in the gallery’s front porch window, and E’van’s music video segment was the highlight of that month’s Virtual Art Crawl. The shirts sold out almost immediately, and half of the earnings were donated to Youth Empowerment through Arts & Humanities. JOE NOLAN
