Blue Boy T-Shirt
Designer: Kehinde Wiley Studio
Materials: Sublimated ring-spun polyester
This all over print, unisex t-shirt features imagery directly pulled from Kehinde Wiley’s painting A Portrait of a Young Gentleman. Luxuriously crafted with comfort and durability in mind, this t-shirt is made from soft, ring-spun poly. Cut and sewn in LA.
Adapted specifically for this t-shirt, Wiley’s painting A Portrait of a Young Gentleman (2021) was created as a contemporary response to Thomas Gainsborough's iconic Blue Boy portrait (1770). His painting reimagines Gainsborough's young white subject as a Black, Senegalese surfer and replaces the original moody wooded landscape with a vibrant floral backdrop which decorates the entire surface of the shirt.
Net proceeds from your purchase support the artist in residence program Black Rock Sénégal, founded by Wiley in 2019.
