Daily Splash: Towels Can Be Beach-Chic Too

Posted by Bikini Owner

Cecily Brown's Works On Whatever Towel
 
You know what's missing from your swimwear style? Towels. 
 
But we're not talking about just any run-of-the-mill cotton towel. No, what we're referring to is the sort of towel that will make you the envy of every pool party, music festival, picnic, and beach day. What's necessary to elevating you to full beach-chic status is a towel that serves as a work of art. British artist Cecily Brown has crafted such a towel. 
 
Brown's Works on Whatever (WOW) towel ($95 on artmarkit.com), featured above, depicts a couple's passionate rendezvous amidst the tangle of bright lines and abstract brushtrokes. Now that's a towel worthy of a selfie backdrop ... or a deep conversation on fine towel art. EIther way, it's sure to impress.
 
The WOW project has been recruiting big-name contemporary artists since 2007, according to Apartment Therapy. Proceeds go toward the nonprofit Art Production Fund in support of public art. Peruse Art Markit's selection. From feminist artist Barbara Kruger's graphic bright red design to Raymond Pettibon's tidal wave work, you're sure to find something that expresses your inner Bikini Girl!
