Acrylic Paint, Kancan Denim
“ I think as an artist you also have a responsibility to speak to what’s going on in the world socially. I like to make tangible memories and tangible time capsules and in that same vein, I like to make a physical version of whatever is going on culturally in the world so people can understand it more and hopefully empathize or feel it, and ultimately change the world. ”

MEANING OF DENIM
For artist, Lizi Pheonix, denim represents wearability, versatility, and inclusivity. Lizi loves how denim could be worn by anyone of any age, race, and gender and also serve as a unique canvas for her to paint on and bring her creativity to life.
ABOUT THE WORK
For her Artist x Kancan collaboration piece, Lizi was inspired by the first abstract piece she has done from her painting collection. For her collection, Lizi works with her clients one-on-one to come up with a piece that speaks to their personality. She took the same concept and mimicked the style and color of her painting and transferred it to Kancan denim, creating a fun and unique statement piece that’s one-of-a-kind. Lizi used one of her favorite paints which is acrylic as its simple to use and dries quickly so it could be painted over and over again if needed.
