Afromuses Couple (Woman) x Chris Ofili
Third Drawer Down and the New Museum are excited to produce the Chris Ofili Afromuses (Couple) tea towels for his Night and Day (2014) exhibition at the New Exhibition Museum in New York. Digitally printed to preserve the vibrancy of Ofili's original watercolours, this Third Drawer Down favourite can be used as a fun way to dry dishes or an affordable artwork for your walls. Intended to be a set but sold individually.
In its entirety, Chris Ofili's Afromuses series consists of over 181 watercolours created between 1995 and 2005. Rather than true portraits of specific individuals, each work is a figurative expression of Ofili's personal impressions and memories of day-to-day life and art history.
