"For me, the portrait is a theatrical play with eyes, nose, mouth, and the light as principal actors. Comedy or drama, equally interesting. I feel that in essence, every portrait is a self-portrait too, I don't want to please nor do I aim at merely creating a realistic representation. I like to capture the moment and preferably paint more than one portrait of a subject, nobody is just one person."
This quote by the creator of this season's Painted Skull graphic, Hans van der Leeuw sums up how he approaches every brushstroke of his oil-paint portraits, emphasizing on interaction rather than interpretation. While he usually portrays living beings, the graphic he created for Patta depicts someone who has moved on to the afterlife. The story behind the Skull and what this (un)fortunate soul had to endure is all up for interpretation. The Patta Painted Skull graphic is featured on two styles this season, a T-Shirt and Hooded Sweater.
The latter is featured in two colours, Melange Grey and this All-Black iteration. The front features subtle branding, an embroidered version of the Patta Script logo we all love and cherish. The back features the aforementioned Painted Skull graphic, with the Skull wearing some fly Patta headwear, keeping him cosy wherever his soul may be.
