ARTIST T SHIRT SERIES Jean Michel Basquiat

This season agnès celebrates the artist t shirt collaborations and will launch over 40 prints.

agnès who was both a friend and collector of the artist, introduces Jean Michel Basquiat to the collection, using the work of Basquiat from her personal art collection. 

Since the beginning agnès b. has designed a t shirt for every occasion, whether it was a film festival or an anniversary, there was a t shirt to mark the day. 

However in 1994 when Felix Gonzales Torrez designed a t shirt declaring “Nobody owns me” the idea of an artist’s t shirt was conceived, and today the t shirt is a collector’s item. 

Since 1994 agnès b. has offered the t shirt as a blank canvas to artists for them to use as they wish; Gilbert & George, Herve Guilbert, William Klein, Douglas Gordon, Claude Leveque and Jonas Mekas are just some of the artists who have been a contributor to this collection over the years.  

The Basquiat t shirt is available for both homme and femme and sizes small, medium and large
