About us | Shopafoo

martin hurley shopafoo dudeFunny, weird t-shirts with a difference! For years I've travelled to different countries; been lost in India at the biggest holy festival on earth, explored the crazy ship breaking yards of Bangladesh, cycled around remote, awe-inspiring temples in Myanmar, lived (and taught English) in Thailand, and traversed many others, often using local transport.

I've always wanted to create something that really resonated with me - fun, mostly silly, full of too many ideas, sparkling with deep curiosity and a questing, creative beauty.

So one night (I lie in bed thinking a lot) I thought I'd create a home that was silly and fun and totally rebellious. A place where I could put all my photographic art, mix in some great photo products, and see what happens.

And so Shopafoo happened, and yep that's where you're at now.

Right now, July 2018, Shopafoo is just me, in Sunshine Coast, Queensland, Australia. It's all my own photography and designs that I create into wearable art. Sometimes the designs end up a bit silly, and sometimes a bit weird too. But mostly it's good fun, and always totally one-of-a-kind, original, wearable art.

Sometimes you just have to throw some foo at the wall and see what sticks.
