Lot description
One of the desirable images from the late prints. This work is after Basquiat's painting of the same name.

Jean-Michel Basquiat, born in 1960, popularity beginning at a young age. Just entering his twenties, Basquiat became known for his political and poetic graffiti that began to appear on walls around New York City under the grafitti tag SAMO (short for “same old”). Basquiat’s mother was Puerto Rican and his father was Haitian. His struggles with his mixed-race identity are often reflected in his artwork through the themes of race and identity. He died of a herion overdose in August of 1988 at the age of 27. Seen today as the most successful of the 1980s-era Neo-expressionist artists, Basquiat’s work is in major museum collections around the world.
