Pitcher by Shantell Martin
For World Water Day 2022, Amref Health Africa is raising awareness and funds for their water and sanitation programs. Amref has partnered with four contemporary Black artists - Hugo McCloud, Shantell Martin, Patrick Martinez and Amy Amalia - to create limited edition water pitchers to raise money in support of Amref's critical programming.
Lack of access to clean water and proper sanitation is one of the most common public health challenges in many communities across Africa. This has become especially more prevalent in the wake of climate change, which is disproportionately affecting the most vulnerable. Currently, the horn of Africa is experiencing the worst drought in over four decades, threatening the lives of millions.
The sale of all 600 pitchers from this project can help Amref provide over 220,000 gallons of clean water to remote communities along migration routes. To learn more about Amref's programming, click here.
In Italian Tray by Jean-Michel Basquiat
This Artware exclusive pairs Jean-Michel Basquiat's iconic In Italian (1983) with a beautifully hand-crafted lacquered tray. This square tray is great all over the house - on your coffee table, in the bathroom, for serving cocktails, or catching mail - and comes in an elegant custom box for easy gifting.
Jean-Michel Basquiat (American, 1960 - 1988) rose to prominence in the 1980s with his neo-expressionist paintings but his oeuvre really began with the street art he made in New York City’s Lower East Side in the mid-1970s. There he developed his improvisational style that appropriates symbols and references from a wide range of sources including music, religion, and history combined with cultural and political commentary to explore the meaning of being African American in contemporary society. His iconic In Italian includes many of these word and symbols - like “crown of thorns,” “corpus,” and images of human anatomy - which point to some of these central themes concerning the individual, religion and mortality.
Holy Chow Dog Bowl by LigoranoReese
Man's best friend deserves a bowl worthy of greatness. Celebrate your pup's power with this limited edition bowl by LigoranoReese exclusively for Artware. It comes in a custom box ready for easy gifting and is dishwasher safe.
LigoranoReese is the collaborative name of Nora Ligorano (American, b. 1956) and Marshall Reese (American, b.1955) whose multi-disciplinary practice focuses on the present and uses technologies of our time to question how social and political systems relate, build, interact, or harm society. Included in their practice is the use of limited edition multiples to both give access of these ideas to a broader audience and to situate them in a domestic context.
