About the edition
Made from 100% superfine lambswool in a Jacquard knit technique. This double-sided knitting style achieves a design rich finish. The front face of the blanket showcases the artist’s design, whilst a birds-eye pattern, driven by the knitting style is achieved on the underside. The blanket has a noticeably soft handle and luxurious heavyweight feel, perfect for those cold winter nights.
About the artist
Michael Craig–Martin (b. 1941 in Dublin, Ireland) is an Irish-born painter and conceptual artist, who is attributed with fostering the Young British Artist movement. Taking from Pop Art’s exploration of commodities and the anthropomorphic qualities of goods, Craig-Martin’s acrylic paintings take mass-produced objects from the consumerist age as subject matter, depicting these quotidian items in graphical lurid colours and outlined in black line drawing.
Selected solo exhibitions include Gagosian, Britannia Street, London (2019); All in All. Hyundai Gallery, Seoul, South Korea (2016); Transience.
