Inspired By - Jean-Michel Basquiat
Dec 22-80 - Aug 12-60
I came across an old Basquiat calendar not long ago and was reminded of the great affinity I have for him.
His bold use of color combined with simplistic representational images make his paintings extremely appealing to me. He was also known for using words in his paintings, and he often crossed out some of the words to emphasize a point of view. I also went through a period of writing in my paintings, but where Basquiat generally used single words and phrases, I was more prone to writing commentary.
