OBAI & HILL are proud to announce Gemini T-shirts as their latest client!
Hailing from Al Khobar, Saudi Arabia, Gemini T-shirts is a unique illustrated and hand painted t-shirt line inspired by Arabic and khaleeji pop culture. Described as “moving paintings, made with passion” Gemini T-shirts is the brainchild of scientist-turned-artist Walaa Fadhel.
Walaa came up with the idea for Gemini T-shirts during her first year of university when she found herself frustrated at the lack of originality in young girls clothing choices – it seemed everyone was wearing the same t-shirts from generic popular brands.
Inspired to innovate, Walaa started designing her own t-shirts in 2010. She started the project because of her faith in the importance of expressing one’s self. Later on Walaa moved on designing for friends and colleagues, eventually launching Gemini T-shirts as a full-fledged business in 2012.
Gemini T-shirts creates a limited edition line of t-shirts each year, in addition to customised designs and commissions. What makes a Gemini piece unique is the fine attention to detail and the truly artistic nature of the designs.
Since its inception Gemini T-shirts has garnered a large fan base with over 17,000 followers on Instagram and 25,000 followers on twitter.
