JOE AVERAGE

“LOVEY” is a sketch I did in the 90’s that never made it to canvas. She has never been a painting or a print but she is now a fabulous shirt!”
- Joe Average

Joe Average is a beloved Canadian pop artist and advocate for the LGBTQIA2S+ community. In 1984, he was diagnosed with HIV, prompting him to put his aspirations into action by making a living from his artwork. Using vivid colours and bold lines as structural elements, Joe created highly stylized paintings. Joe has lent his name and art to many social and humanitarian causes in Canada and has received countless awards and citations for his philanthropic work. In 2019 Joe was commissioned by the Royal Canadian Mint to design a coin to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the decriminalization of homosexuality in Canada.

The Box

Shipped in Custom Engraved Handmade Box

David Gratton, the founder of DEQQ Apparel, loves unboxing new Apple products.

But...

"It also wracks me with guilt after. I’m loath to throw out the box it comes in. It feels so wasteful. I don’t want to be part of something like that. Our box is strong, beautiful, durable and supports many uses. I have mine in the living room filled with Polaroids of my family and friends.”
