Jean-Michel Basquiat In Italian Skateboard Set
1980s art icon and native New Yorker Jean-Michel Basquiat was hailed for works that draw on a multivalent range of sources, from Greek, Roman, and African art to jazz, pop culture, and his artistic contemporaries. Before he rose to art stardom, however, his work was already legendary on the streets of downtown NYC. Under the tag SAMO©, Basquiat's fragmented poetry and poignant symbols established a visual vocabulary that continues to inspire a new generation of graffiti artists today.
Past and contemporary street culture come full circle in this Jean-Michel Basquiat skateboard triptych featuring a reproduction of Basquiat's 1983 work, “In Italian.”
