Basquiat (2020) – 29.7 cm x 21 cm – Alcohol markers on white paper

An ode to artist Jean-Michel Basquiat on his 60th Birthday, 22nd December 2020. I was looking though some photographs of Basquiat online and came across a charming Polaroid picture of him wearing a shirt and tie.

Just the week before I interviewed Artist Olek on my podcast, just before our chat she was at The Green-Wood Cemetery in Brooklyn, Basquiat’s final resting place paying her respects. I made a small donation to the upkeep of the cemetery grounds to say thank you to Olek for her time.
