Best Art Drops: Punk Ceramics, Kevin Lyons x Nike Running Tees & More

Including new limited prints from celebrated visual artists, Evan M. Cohen and Taj Francis.

By //Arts 

Developing creative concepts usually requires a degree of obsession. For Danish artist Rose Eken, her affinity for creating ceramic sculptures, embroideries, and drawings of punk paraphernalia began as a teen when she work at music venues in Copenhagen. Her job required her to clean up cigarette butts, beer cans, ditched clothes, and more found objects at concerts. These discarded items continue to influence her fine works that are now for sale on major contemporary art platforms, such as Artsy. Eken is just one of many artists who kickstarted her fine art career by having a mania for odd yet commonplace relics.

Read on to learn more about Eken’s pieces for sale alongside other best art drops this week.
