Basquiat for Art Hounds #32
The recent London opening of "Boom for Real": an exhibition of 100+ works of 80s art prodigy Jean-Michel Basquiat appears to have spawned a new wave of Basquiat-inspired stuff - from tattoos to trainers to towels it's all there.
This Growlmama Loves we curate our top picks of the trend for both you and your mutt.
Art hound or not, we know you'll be smitten.
5. Twin with your pup in some more kit from Browns launched in limited numbers to celebrate Basquiat's first UK exhibition. Pictured Rome Pays Off 5 pocket jeans (but there's a whole lot more stuff in this fab collection). We quite fancy the JMB skateboard (to hang on our wall).
7.Lovers of ink, art (and dogs of course), tag yourself with JMB's signature crown (which we can't help but notice resembles our dog muse's prominent gnashers). Prefer something more obviously doggy? Mix up your ink with a Basquiat contemporary: read Haring hound or Warhol woof.
8. And finally... rather ink up your walls than yours truly? Then wrap yourself up a real JMB. While many are replete with doggy motifs, the trick is to find one you can actually afford....We picked the derivative Bansky (pictured top and below) which appeared outside the Barbican on the launch of the show. Worth a look and a dog-selfie (especially if your pup has the same teef).
