painting of woman enjoying painting by Jean Michel Basquiat
acrylic on panel (masonite)
8" x 8" or 20 x 20 cm
Jean-Michel Basquiat was at the forefront of New York’s downtown avant-garde in the late 1970s and 80s. He was known to have pored over the medical textbook Gray’s Anatomy. Much of the anatomical imagery and diagram-like composition of his paintings, drawings, and prints is derived from that interest.
Later he was influenced by the bright, gestural symbology of graffiti. Basquiat’s unique and versatile style is deeply connected to the downtown New York music and arts scenes through his early work as a street artist.
I create small studies like Untitled (Ernok) in preparation for a finished piece or just as visual notes. I often use my small studies to understand the problems involved in rendering subjects and to plan the elements to be used in finished works, such as light, color, form, perspective and composition.
These small studies are exclusively available through my shop and blog. All studies are signed on the reverse.
