(/gri'zai/) 
Grisaille is a method of monochrome painting used widely during the Renaissance. It imitates sculpture or relief and is often used as an underpainting before the addition of different colors. 
Just as the Renaissance yearned for a resurgence of classical antiquity, so Grisaille explores the feelings of nostalgia associated with our generation’s childhood.
Nostalgia is an inexplicable feeling. A feeling of sadness found when looking back on some of the memories that were the most joyous. A wistful feeling of grey when we rediscover some of the most colorful times. A goal for this brand as it progresses is to embody this enigmatic feeling.  
Grisaille Clothing will experiment with different options of layering pieces, and will have a color palette comprised mostly of neutrals, earth tones, and muted hues.
For now, I am entirely hands on with everything including screen printing, photography, cinematography, brand identity, etc.. I will take steps to soon see this brand expand from one person, to a multitude of like-minded creatives. Thank you for being here for the origin.
