“If we don't make it together, we won't make it together."

Founded as an outlet for his DIY, hacked-canvas worldview, it evolved into an exploration of art and politics, culture and economics, of that general complexity of the world around us. There aren’t a lot of answers. Stirling’s works look for ways through it all by keeping simple explanations at arm’s length and constantly reaching for new connections between ideas and imagery.

All embodied by a mishmash aesthetic that is equal parts joy and irony. Stirling Prentice and Winged Beast stand at many cross-streets, idling on the corners of the physical and the digital, the ephemeral and the abiding, memory and imagination. The result is a body of work that is both recognizable and timeless (or at least timely).From t-shirts to postcards, to whatever, Stirling and Winged Beast strive to create socially responsible and locally driven products. It’s decent stuff for these godless times.
