Anyone who has followed the media closely in recent years has been unable to avoid one topic: “Black lives matter”. It is representative of the zeitgeist of an anti-discriminatory attitude that is making its way in free societies. Jean-Michel Basquiat discussed this topic in public as early as the 1980s.
Basquiat’s artworks are edgy and raw. Urban imagery and primitivism. Inspired by nothing less than his own life. Characterized by his self-portraits and a conjunction of various media – from words, letters and numerals to pictograms, logos and symbols. An impressive expression of diversity and against racism.
