We’re thrilled that museums and galleries have been able to safely reopen (and loving the virtual exhibitions we’re visiting from the comfortable distance of our homes) and we’ve been soaking up art online and IRL every chance we get. Since new art = new ideas, we’ve turned some of that into retail inspiration with this October update from our store. We’re excited to show off the cool new products we’ve just gotten in stock alongside some classic favorites, and we hope this list helps spark a little insight for your holiday giving plans this season.
Introduce a favorite painting to your wardrobe with the art-inspired socks in our store, now back in stock with even more styles than before! One of our favorites is this wearable adaptation of Arshile Gorky’s “Garden in Sochi,” reimagined for a knitted canvas. Make sure to check out the rest of the collection to get as gifts for your favorite art nerds: each pair features a different masterpiece from the archives of art history.
Become the ruler of your destiny with this pretty-in-pink tea towel featuring an original illustration by queer multidisciplinary artist Frances Cannon, whose work examines being a woman in contemporary times. For more positive vibes, tender drawings, and thoughtful takes on self-love, sexuality, and identity, peruse the other products by Cannon that we carry.
The 12 cards in this boxed set feature the work of popular Japanese artist Yoshitomo Nara. Four different images of his quintessential big-headed, emotive children can be yours to keep with enough left over to send to friends and family (the cards are left blank inside for messages). For more artful means of delivering a touch of culture to a loved one’s mailbox, browse our pop-up cards and stationery sets.
Whether you’re looking for a gift for the cat person in your life (if you’re not one, you know one) or for a paw-some addition to your personal collection, this long and spindly Catometti might just be the right choice. Adopt one while you still can and shop the Hyperallergic Store for more unique art-inspired pins with a four-legged twist!
One of medieval art history’s most beloved tapestries, part of the permanent collection at the Met Cloisters in Fort Tryon Park, NYC, is now available in our store as an enamel pin and embroidered patch. However, our favorite interpretation has to be this large-scale silk twill scarf. Wrap it around thyself to become the best-dressed guest at the castle!
Use it as a tote or wear it as a mask! You won’t believe what comes out of your mouth when you take this bag on a walk. For when you need to carry something but also be ready to fight the patriarchy at any moment, this tote by intersectional feminist activist artist group Guerrilla Girls will do the trick. Shop the collection for more ferocious gift ideas!
Does this embroidered patch appeal to your sense of De Stijl? Then you’ll definitely appreciate the rest of our Mondrian-inspired products, which cleverly riff on Neoplasticism’s strict adherence to an abstraction of essential forms and colors with a variety of wearable options.
This functional domestic art product made in collaboration with Yayoi Kusama is sure to add a pop of color to any wall or dinner table. Stare at it for a while and watch the dots and squiggles become faces swimming peacefully alongside thickly-outlined shapes reminiscent of amoebas and other microbes in a giant yellow petri dish. Visit our store for accessories, kitchenware, and more inspired by one of the world’s most iconic contemporary artists.
New to the store but already a hit, the cloth napkins based on one of American textile designer Marguerita Mergentime’s bold patterns are formatted so that four different graphic effects can be achieved depending on how the napkins are folded. The set is available in both cool and warm colors, and we think it would compliment any of the items in our Home Goods collection.
An addictive assortment of comics by Hyperallergic favorite Lauren Purje about the ups and downs of life in the arts. Flights of fancy, bitter grumblings, pep talks, self-doubt, inspiration, procrastination, and more are all captured with a wry and relatable sense of humor. We sell signed editions of this book in our store! Check out the rest of our books for poetry, kid lit, and beyond.
