Jean-Michel Basquiat (1960-1988) created work that speaks to an Afro-Atlantic tradition that enthralled Western European painters like Picasso and Matisse. In his short life he went from spray-painting the streets of NYC to holding solo shows in SoHo’s most exclusive galleries, all the while learning and incorporating a greater diversity of influences. This reproduction print offers an example of Basquiat’s exuberant art, showing his attention to folk forms, text, color, and his always energetic style.
