Jean Michel Basquiat wasn’t a formally trained artist, but he took the old school art world by storm when he arrived on the scene with his colourful and provocative art. His art was partly inspired by anatomy since his mother had given him a copy of an anatomy textbook as a child. He took elements from all different areas of his life and used layers of different media to create thought provoking pieces that highlighted the Black experience in America.
During his lifetime Basquiat had a prolific career producing many paintings and living the life of a New York artist. He was also in a rap band, appeared in a movie, and was friends with many musicians and artists.
Basquiat had an eclectic style which is reflected in the POP figure. He is looking sharp in a suit, but he has bare feet and cool sunglasses with his iconic dreadlock hairstyle. The POP artists figure is an excellent choice of gift for artists and art fans.
