Art on my front!!

A little while ago, the gorgeous Marian at House of Style did a lovely post on 'Art on my back', which inspired me to do this post of 'Art on my front'!!
Last Spring, whilst on a London shopping trip, I purchased two t shirts from Uniqlo-they were 2 for £20, which was a really good deal.
Both of them have prints by the late Jean-Michel Basquiat, who was a leading figure of American pop art and a grafitti artist superstar in the 1980s. He sadly died of a heroin overdose in 1988. A film was made of his life and his work is highly sought after.

So, after seeing Marian wearing her artwork, I thought I'd wear one of my tops over jeans and a polo neck as a layering piece. Both have a side slit, so can be knotted, a la 80s style.

Chloe Sevigny modelled the collection last year when it came out on sale-this is also my other Uniqlo top.

Do you have a work of art that you can wear?

I loved that post by Marian and love yours. I live grafic prints and wouldn't mind wearing art on my front or back. Yours really looks great.

I'm loving it on you, Sharon. I want one too, I'd wear it as a dress with heels, hehe :)
I don't currently own a piece of art , but I'm definitely looking to purchase something of that sort.
Hope you are having a fantastic day!

Love your work of art, very cool!

tanya said...

ooohh i just love Basquiat. That tank is great--the knotted side gives it that great 80s feel that goes so well with the print. I would totally wear it as a dress too for a night out!

Sharon Rose said...

Hi Silje-thanks my dear!

Hi Tanya-yes, maybe in summer I'll be daring enough to wear it as a dress!!

fashion herald said...

love the basquiat on you, and the side knot is inspired - perfect 80's! my husband painted a bunch of ties years ago, i should start wearing them.

Sal said...

How fun to wear a Basquiat! I don't have any traditional visual art printed on clothing, but I bought a sweater in Tasmania that is so gorgeous I consider it to be a work of art. Does that count?

Sharon Rose said...

Hi fashion herald-that would be such a cute look, go for it!!

Hi Sal-I say so, that would be lovely to see my dear!
