Steve Cross x VNA x Aisle6ix

Steve Cross is a world class artist based in Melbourne – he is a drawer, sketcher, painter, tattoo artist, muralist and illustrator amongst other things… VNA teamed up with him to create this awesome 6-colour screen-printed t-shirt, produced by Aisle6ix Industries in Sydney.

This process video was put together by the legends from Paste Studios, it’s how the printing for 6 colour spot process T-shirts we printed for VNA Magazine x Steve Cross Collaboration went down.
Shouts to the Aisle6ix crew for all the hard work and Alex from Paste Studio’s for putting this video together.

Stay posted for the drop of these tees coming soon…

Shannon McKinnon

Shannon McKinnon is the boss of Aisle6ix Industries screen-printers, operator of Secret Walls Australia division and an all-round all-Australian legend. He took a little time out of his busy lifestyle to give us the lowdown on his love affair with screen-printing, Australian art and Chilli.

Big Shannie Mac, tell us a little bit about what you do… What’s the crack with Aisle6ix, how did it evolve? And has it always been something you’ve wanted to do?

Aisle6ix Industries developed when I moved to Sydney from Canberra and fell in love with screen-printing. During my studies I met Greg Beer, VNA’s art director, and he and I would come up with designs and I would screen-print them. After four years in Sydney, I moved to London and spent two years working for Photofit, an amazing screen-printing shop just near Old Street tube. It was back-to-basics and an amazing experience. I then moved to Melbourne and worked for Screenplay in Fitzroy then made another move, this time to Sydney, where Aisle6ix Industries really got its roots. So after lots of travel and with a huge amount of support from my girlfriend, Shakira, Aisle6ix Industries is busier than ever.
