In 1913 the artist Kazimir Malevich developed a visual abstract language that attempted to set up “a genuine world order, a new philosophy of life”.  This bib bearing the black square, icon of Suprematism, suggests the promising beginnings of a new-born child.

Martin, keep your trousers up!

, 2014
Beer belly size
Leather and metal buckle
Made in Barcelona
Martin Kippenberger, self-proclaimed “artist of the 80s”, struggled to keep his trousers up at public events. His provocative and jokey attitude was a part of his artistic persona; but couldn’t it also have been the product of not owning a decent belt?

The Art Dealer’s Mat

, 2014

62 x 33 cm
Made in Barcelona
Shipping cost included

Art dealer Daniel-Henry Kahnweiler won a respected place in art history as an early supporter of Cubist painters such as Pablo Picasso, Juan Gris and Georges Braque. But you wouldn’t want to live near him knowing his habit of wiping his feet on the neighbour’s mat – as Picasso remarked after a visit to his dealer’s house.
