Alex Kwong x UpLift! Collab – The Centenarian Sweater

$90.00

The Centenarian Sweater

Visits with Della Senz on the porch of her house – which is as old as she is – are treasured by countless Jasper locals, visitors, and fluttering hummingbirds. When Calgarian mural artist Alex Kwong was invited to paint in UpLift! Jasper Mural Festival 2023, he said he wanted to make sure his mural was a gift specific to the community. After becoming one of those endeared visitors to Della’s porch, and asking her if he could paint her portrait, it’s clear to all: he delivered.

Della turns 100 in May of 2024, and at the same time Alex’s mural of her turns 1. It is indeed a cause for celebration – a Dellabration – for the ages. In honour of this monumental occassion, Alex Kwong and UpLift! Jasper have collaborated to create a limited edition of a special crew sweater. In line with the intent behind Della’s mural, Alex hopes that one can don this Centenarian Crew and feel calm and safe, as if you were having tea with a life long friend.

When Alex asked Della what the secret to life is, she said: “Oh I dunno…do your best and be good to people”. May this sweater remind us all of that advice each time we see it.

Thank you to Della and the entire Senz family. Cherish and celebrate one another always.
