The humble tea towel is one of Melbourne label Third Drawer Down's signature artist products. A practical and fun way to dry the dishes, it can also be stretched onto a canvas at your local framer and double up as an affordable artwork for your home. Chris Ofili's Afromuses Couple tea towels were produced in collaboration with the New Museum in New York. 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 watercolors were digitally printed onto the tea towels preserving the vibrancy of the original colours. ABOUT THE ARTIST: Chris Ofili was born in Manchester, England, in 1968.
