If you know me then you know I have no problem bragging about how talented the individual I’m about to mention is. Which brings me to my next point. I am honored to be given such an exclusive piece of artwork that I cannot wait to wear. This piece was exclusively painted by Nimo.
Nimo, has been known to dabble in painting on his spare time when he’s not creating music and other entrepreneur duties. So you can imagine my excitement when he was ready to bless my leather jacket with his freestyle hand paintings inspired by Jean-Michel Basquiat.
I have a love for the late artist Jean-Michel Basquiat. He’s been trending in fashion and the art world for the past few years. I have Richard to thank for putting me on game. Most recently the high-end makeup brand Urban Decay featured a collaboration with the artists’ paintings covering their packaging. That was definitely on my Must-Buy list but that didn’t happen.
The faux-leather jacket was a steal purchase at Forever 21. There are silver embellishments on the front but no artwork. I wanted to allow for the wow-factor with the back of the jacket.
The small lettering are inspirational, encouraging and motivating to anyone who catches a glimpse of it.
