Bohemians, beauties and burnouts – Calvin is known for his figurative paintings of a typically Californian crowd. Painted in bright, sun-drenched hues with an almost cartoonish quality, Calvin’s figures are shaped by pop cultural references. Although necessarily flat, the images are not easy: the artist includes skewed crops and unknowable narratives in each composition, the result is a painting at once familiar and strange. For his first ever artist’s blanket edition, Calvin has produced an original work that focuses on the mouth, a pervasive motif within his oeuvre.
Each blanket is made by master Scottish craftspeople with a rich heritage of knitwear and textile production using completely natural materials. The double-sided knitting style achieves a design rich finish. The front face of the blanket showcases the artwork, whilst a birdseye pattern driven by the knitting style is achieved on the underside. Each blanket has a noticeably soft handle and luxurious feel.
