BLINDSIDE Edition 2022

Scotty So

100% mercerised cotton apron with digital print
Edition of 100

Please expect delivery to take one week

The apron was inspired by So’s own work, Mel B Confirms Spice Girls Australian Tour, an industrial lollipop road sign made with Spice Girls' lyrics 'STOP RIGHT NOW THANK YOU VERY MUCH' on one side and 'GOTTA SLOW IT DOWN GOTTA HAVE SOME FUN'. The work was made in reference to both the campiness of iconic pop songs and the masculinity of tradie equipment. The colour of the apron extends the design as well as the purpose of the road sign - a way for people to be cautious and pay attention as they wear this apron in kitchens or workshops.

Scotty So is a Melbourne based artist who works across media, using painting, photography, sculptures, site-responsive installation, videos and drag performance. Driven by the thrill of camp, he explores the often-contradictory relationship between humour and sincerity within lived experience. Born and raised in Hong Kong, So graduated with BFA Honours at the Victorian College of the Arts in Melbourne, Australia, 2019. So’s work has been shown in Hong Kong, China and Australia.
