Third Drawer Down
Afromuses Chris Ofili Art Print - Man
This may be a humble tea towel but it can also be stretched onto a canvas at your local framer and double up as a beautiful and affordable artwork for your home, as pictured here. In fact we insist you have these two framed-it's a must!?
This tea towels are produced as part of a collaborative license with the New Museum in New York.
The watercolors were digitally printed onto the tea towels preserving the vibrancy of the original colours. With a customised border, these tea towels are intended as a set but are sold individually.
Afromuses in its entirety presents over 181 watercolors created by Ofili between 1995-2005. None of the works are intended as actual representations of real people. Instead, they are figurative expressions. These figures emerge from Ofili's personal references and impressions of memory, day-to-day life and art history.
The man and the woman are available as a set for £65.

Why It's on The Cornrow?
We are continually searching for affordable art to elevate your walls. We are passionate admirers of Chris Ofili's work, and were there at the start when he shocked everyone with the works decorated with elephant dung! His work is always beautiful and soulful.
Founded by Abigail Crompton in Melbourne, Australia, Third Drawer Down has been making art accessible and life less ordinary since 2003.
Abigail is an artistic force for good and is dedicated to making great art part of everybody’s every day.
Third Drawer Down studio collaborates with artists to reimagine their works into objects.
Objects that are thought provoking, entertaining, interesting and made with care.
Abi explains it all started with existential wonderings ‘what is art ?’ This question led to the original Third Drawer Down Studio project.
Abi took the humble tea towel and reimagined it into a conduit for art. A project that continues today.
