Lot description
Executed in black and red crayon, this dynamic drawing from 1988 is an excellent example of Jean-Michel Basquiat’s mature style. Featuring post office labels from New York, this work can be seen as a homage to the city where he was born and raised, and that served as a catalyst for his creative development. A red stamp on the right-hand side of the paper reads “Earth Domestic,” placing the artist in the larger social and art historical context. Created in the last year of Basquiat’s life, this drawing demonstrates the powerful combination of appropriated imagery and text that characterize his work.
