Life of the Party
Linen textile | 2021
Ali Beletic’s “Freerider Flags” demonstrate her interest in free rider culture, which she describes as a philosophy and way of life that celebrates new experiences beyond existing boundaries. The linen textiles are inspired by the words of journalist Hunter S. Thompson and the stories of vanguards who lived simply with hedonic spirit. Take “Party Wave” for example—the phrase originates from surf culture and describes when multiple surfers share a wave. Beletic’s flag champions the term and its unlimited, inclusive attitude.

Tappan invites you to explore our curated collection of artworks focusing on art objects.
Framing & Mounting
Our frames are produced from the best quality wood, primarily from Italy. Each is custom cut and assembled by hand to fit your art. Hanging hardware included!
THIN GALLERY FRAME
This modern profile was designed for artists and photographers. Narrow on the front and deep on the sides, our slim mouldings provide a clean, sharp frame for your art, and allows all focus to be on your gorgeous work.
3/4" wide; 1 1/8" deep
UV - PROTECTIVE ACRYLIC
Our acrylic is more expensive than glass, but we use it because it’s clearer, far more impact resistant, and protects your art against UV rays. Framing-grade acrylic has become a new standard in framing because of its “clear” benefits.
THE FULL BLEED
Works are framed flush with the edge of your print without a mat. Request border modifications and spacers, which keep the work from touching the glass.
Adds a white core mat with a bevel cut opening to the edge of your print. If your work has a signature or edition numbering, we will automatically mat around it unless otherwise specified.
We use 4-ply, conservation-grade, acid-free mat board. We match whites and off-whites to your exact piece. Acid-free materials protect your art from yellowing or becoming brittle.
Floating a piece allows for a full view of the face and sides of the artwork. Floating is recommended for original drawings and paintings or any piece produced on specially trimmed paper.
Recently featured in Vogue and Architectural Digest (in the home of Eva Chen), Beletic’s practice includes large, abstract paintings, neon sculptures, sewn textile flags, and site specific collaborative experiences that incorporate her music practice. Her work explores the perception of human joy and celebration, through the lens of rock n roll, ancient traditions, latent instincts and sensual experiences.
