GRIT KRONIC by RAW WAR is an expressional project, which explores the use of materials such as Silicone, Vinyl, Spray Paint, and most importantly UV thread, under the bracket of Design Technology. The term GRIT, representing the visual display and aesthetics of this concept as dirty, street, messy, and not clean, which highly links to the genre of Streetwear which RAW WAR is targeting. This project stays consistent within the genre of Streetwear through the silhouettes of oversized outerwear [a long coat and a chest-vest], in addition to a pair of Nike Air Force 1s, abstractly spray-painted just like the garments and display.
This project was featured in Curtin University’s Design Technology Exhibition in December of 2016.
