Slowtide exists to provide a new medium for art and self expression. By turning an everyday essential into a functional piece of art, they have created a broader reaching canvas for all environments. Over the years, Slowtide has worked with world renowned artists and photographers, including Takashi Murakami, Kevin Lyons, Don Pendleton, Mark McIinnis, Sebo Walker, William LaChance and Ty Williams, and now are looking for the next great collaboration! With this in mind and Juxtapoz in support, Slowtide have announced the third annual Creative Canvas Art Contest. Learn more on the Slowtide website.


From the brand: We want to reward your creativity! Please submit your art and photography via Instagram and show us how your creative canvas would make the perfect Slowtide Tapestry Blanket or Quick Dry Towel. Please review the rules to enter.

We will select one artist & one photographer and each will receive:
