【金斯專訪】透過單寧創作宣導反戰的藝術家~Denimoholic

從人類演化歷史看來,不分國籍種族,常常為了滿足自身利益及慾望,引發出各種規模不同的大小戰爭,也研發出各式致命武器,造成了許多不不必要的傷亡,但是從1960年代開始,人們意識到戰爭都是損人害己的行為,因此開始風行Anti-War的意識訴求.

除了上街遊行抗議之外,也有人選擇用不同的方式來表達反戰的理念,像是海報設計或是攝影作品等,表達出民眾對於戰爭的恐懼及追求和平的理想.

今天金斯透客要專訪的對象,就是一位透過自創Denim服飾作品,來宣導反戰理念的丹寧藝術家-「Denimoholic」

:這邊先請您和台灣的朋友做些簡單的自我介紹,讓我們對您有基本的認識 🙂

DH: Hi my name is THINLES CHOSDUP, a.k.a Denimoholic . I have been working in garment industry since 9 + years. In these years of my experience I have extensively worked with denim as a specialization. In this course of time I have done various collaboration projects, small thematic jeans collection and various private workshops .on jeans. I have also done Denim lines .For brands, like Wills Lifestyle, United colors of Benetton, US POLO Denim co. To name few key brands.
嗨,我是THINLES CHOSDUP, 名號是Denimoholic. 我從事服裝產業的經歷了超過九年以上. 在這幾年的經驗中,對丹寧方面有廣泛及專業的研究. 在這些過程中,我做了許多合作企劃,像是各種主題式牛仔褲收集,以及個人牛仔褲工作室等等. 也曾經為一些品牌從事過丹寧布料研發的工作,像是Wills Lifestyle, United colors of Benetton, US POLO Denim co幾個知名品牌

Apart from working for Global brands, I also do small creative, niche collaboration with various brands, factories and students as a true Denim artist. I am always open .For any projects regarding denim where, i can re invent, re work on any denim .fabric or a vintage piece for an innovative, artistic and authentic outcome. It serves me as daily fuel and inspiration!
除了替這些國際品牌工作之外,我還會以單寧藝術家的身分,和各種對象不論是品牌啊工廠甚至是學生進行富有創意的合作. 我的想法一直是很開放的,只要是和單寧有相關的任何主題,布料啊或是古著等,我都會試著重新塑造出一個創新,富有藝術性且真實的成品出來.這是讓我每天充滿動力和靈感的原因.

:您的主題”Make Jeans, Not war”很有意思,可以說明一下為何會強調這句話嗎?

DH: “MAKE JEANS NOT WAR ” this caption is stuck with me since i started my first blog post 7 years back when the trend and fan following of jeans was on the rise. I consider Denim makers as a very closely connected and emotional people. These are people who .love what they do , at the same time there is strong community of artists and designers who share the same passion and dedication towards jeans making.
“MAKE JEANS NOT WAR”這個標題從我七年前開始經營部落格,隨著粉絲數的上升以及潮流演變,都是以它為中心思想.我認為丹寧創作者都是富有情感以及緊密結合的人們.這些藝術家和設計師熱愛自己的行為,同時也藉由製作牛仔褲來分享相同的熱情和貢獻.

Also with so much passion coming from the jeans creators, equal amount of .love comes from denim fans of all ethnicity and of all ages. So there is no better way to Spread PEACE message in such a community..whose religion is ONE i.e Denim. Hence the caption ” Make jeans not war “.
這些豐富的情感除了來自於這些牛仔褲創造者,同樣的也包含了來自世界上不分種族年紀的丹寧愛好者. 所以這是一個非常好的方式在這樣的族群中宣傳和平理念,於是就產生了”Make jeans not war”這個標語

:您分享的文章照片中大部分都是以藍色為基底,有甚麼特殊原因嗎?

DH: the love for Color BLUE is the color of Indigo . The basic of Jeans .fabric dyeing . So i would say my hearts bleeds BLUE. the Blue hues of Indigo fills ..my heart and life at this moment.
對藍色的喜好是因為單寧的顏色,牛仔褲布料的基本染色.我會說我的心中流著藍色的血,我的人生是充滿藍色的基調.

:常常看到您分享自己的作品,很多都是高水準的成品,您是否有自創品牌或是和其他廠商合作過?

DH: Yes i have worked for brands .like Benetton , US Polo Assn… ..for their denim products. Also i do my own ” Artisanal pieces ” under the label Denimoholic ……for the jeans lovers who wants something more than just jeans. A lot of custom treatments and handwork details combined.
我有和一些品牌合作過像是Benetton,US Polo Assn,參與他們的單寧產品研發.同時也用Denimoholic這個名號來進行屬於我自己的藝術設計部分,給那些不光只是想要普通牛仔褲的丹寧愛好者,提供許多特製的手工成品.

:您有分享參加”Arvinddenimlab”所舉辦的活動,看起來蠻有意思的,可以分享一下這個團體的由來嗎?

DH: Arvind denim Lab is one the best denim studios in the world to do denim developments for Denim Brands, denim designers and jeans producing partners. I have the privilege to do developments at their lab every year, and I find their facilities and resources very much aligned to new innovations and trends as per the denim industry.
Arvind denim Lab是世界上最好的丹寧工作室之一,提供單寧研發環境給單寧品牌和設計師以及牛仔褲的製造夥伴們. 我每年都有權利可以在他們的實驗室裡進行相關研發,而且我發現他們的設備及資源對單寧產業是非常對等的,不管你是要追求創新還是開發符合市場潮流的產品.

:您在Blog發表一篇把牛仔褲埋在荒郊野外,用大自然的力量來進行養成的企劃,非常有趣,可以說明一下嗎?

DH: Burying the Jeans. Was a Project I Initiated last year 2017. The denim pieces were buried in the Himalayas …for a period of 1 year. The objective is to see all the pieces GO through a variety of climatic conditions, rain, snow, heat, wind
掩埋牛仔褲是我2017年開始的一項專案.這些單寧衣物會掩埋在喜馬拉雅山大概一年左右的時間,主要是想觀察這些衣物在不同的氣候中,像是下雨下雪或是日曬雨淋等等,會產生怎樣的變化.

從這次的訪談中,可以感受到Denimholic對於單寧文化的愛好及熱情,以及追求世界和平的理念,如果想要看到更多Denimoholic的作品,可以追蹤他的IG: 「Denimoholic」
