NYC Graffiti Ganesh Print Long-Sleeve T-Shirts: Outsider Art Apparel Launched

Sarah James Jazz Merch, the online apparel outlet of New York-based photographer and musician Sarah James, now has a new 100% cotton long-sleeve T-shirt featuring a distinctive example of NYC graffiti art.

Reflecting Sarah James' belief in New York City’s status as the cultural center of the world, her latest T-shirt release captures an ephemeral yet vital aspect of the city’s raw creativity - the vibrant, multicultural graffiti art adorning many of its public surfaces. With her NYC graffiti T-shirt line, James aims to preserve these images before they are sanitized away or covered over and to share them with other art lovers and creative people.

The new T-shirt, titled “We Rise By Lifting Others - Elephant,” is entirely fabricated from pure, six-ounce, preshrunk cotton that has a comfortable touch against the skin. Sarah James photographed its featured image on a building wall on Manhattan’s Lower East Side, on the corner of Sixth Street and First Avenue, in the early spring of 2023.

The mural is a striking close-up of the Hindu god Ganesh as a pink elephant wearing pearl-festooned headgear. Since Ganesh symbolizes protection and the removal of obstacles to move forward in life, the image’s tag is apt: “We Rise By Lifting Others.”

The mural’s dominant colors of pink, red, and yellow symbolize purity, peace, good fortune, and worldly activity. They convey the message that one should perform one’s worldly duties calmly, gladly, and honestly.

These T-shirts are only available on the Sarah James Jazz Merch store, where they come in six different colors and six different sizes, from small to 3XL. The store features other examples of Sarah James’ efforts to preserve NYC’s graffiti art on comfortable, durable, versatile T-shirts.

“I’m in search of artwork that speaks to me,” Sarah James says of the project. “Most times the work of the artist makes me think about a feeling that is being conveyed with immediacy. Many times, I feel the loss, the confusion, and the spirituality of the artist come through in the images in a way that is rough, free, raw, and unencumbered by intellect.”
