Notes

This iconic visual is an untitled piece originally presented at Jean-Michel Basquiat’s debut solo exhibition in New York City. Skull, as it came to be known, features a deconstructed figure that plays heavily on the contrast between inner and outer elements – a suggested dichotomy prominent in many of Basquiat’s works. Though the piece seems easy to understand at first glance, a deeper look leaves us wondering what message the mythical artist truly wanted to deliver.

This new artwork edition is part of our collaboration with the Estate of Jean-Michel Basquiat.
