Behind the ArtWear with Collin Bogle (News updated 20th March 2017)

Collin Bogle has created many pieces of majestic animal ArtWear for The Mountain, and is continually working on new designs and concepts. Collin’s animal portrayals come to life on an almost painting like image.

The Mountain has included many additions of Collins work, in there T Shirt collections over the years. You’ll recognise such classics as Snow Plow, Adventure Wolf, On The Prowl and more.

Light tends to play a major role in Collins work, bringing the subject to life. This can especially be seen in some of his 2017 designs like Northern Lights. Often his ArtWear includes abstract shapes like random clusters and sunlit snowy branches, other times they also feature the predators piercing eyes as the animal stares right at you. Whatever the subject, you can be sure that Collins work is a feast for the eyes.
