An iconic Neo-Expressionist image, will enhance any interior or serious art collection. Basquiat’s work is one of the few examples of how an early 1980s American Punk, or graffiti-based and counter-cultural practice could become a fully recognized, critically embraced and popularly celebrated artistic phenomenon. Despite his work’s “unstudied” appearance, Basquiat very skillfully and purposefully brought together in his art a host of disparate traditions, practices, and styles to create a unique kind of visual collage, one deriving, in part, from his urban origins, and in another a more distant, African-Caribbean heritage. The present work represents the ultimate tour-de-force of expressive line, color and form that has come to represent Basquiat’s iconic painterly oeuvre. Expressionist in its exuberance, the frenetic brushwork acts as the framework for the rest of the composition, built up methodically through layers of drips, scrawls and passages of pigment massaged with the artists own fingers. “Basquiat is art’s answer to Jimi Hendrix and Charlie Parker” L.
