painting of woman enjoying painting by Jean Michel Basquiat
acrylic on panel (masonite)
8" x 8" or 20 x 20 cm
The figure on my painting is enjoying a painting by Jean Michel Basquiat. ISBN contains a rich repertoire of paint traces, figural fragments, written fragments and collage elements. The black skull with the rasta hair is clearly a self portrait. Unlike many other graffiti stars Basquiat never gave up his social critique or his artistic protest.
I create small studies like ISBN 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.
Shipping takes about two weeks no matter where you live in the world. Price includes shipping and handling. You'll receive your painting safely packaged and ready to frame.
