The humble tea towel is one of Third Drawer Down's signature artist products. A practical and fun way to dry the dishes, it can also be stretched like a canvas or framed under glass at your local framer to double up as an affordable artwork for your home, as pictured here. In fact, we insist you have these two framed - it's a must!

Third Drawer Down Studio worked with New Museum on a collaborative license to produce the Chris Ofili Afromuses Couple tea towels. They were produced for Night and Day (2014), an exhibition at the New Museum in New York. Afromuses in it's 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 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.

About the Artist

Chris Ofili was born in Manchester, England, in 1968. He currently lives and works in Port of Spain, Trinidad. He received his BA from the Chelsea School of Art in 1991 and his MA from the Royal College of Art in 1993. He won the Turner Prize in 1998, and went on to represent Britain at the 50th Venice Biennale in 2003. Solo exhibitions of his work have been presented internationally, including recent shows at the Arts Club of Chicago (2010), Tate Britain, London (2010 and 2005), Kestnergesellschaft, Hannover (2006), and the Studio Museum in Harlem, New York (2005).
