Ode to JMB (Basquiat)

 

As its title states, this painting is an ode to the late, great artist Jean-Michel Basquiat. His art, to me, is reflective of his culture - Haiti meets NYC. It is scribbly, messy and childlike and is met with mixed reviews from its viewers. I wanted to celebrate this childishness and 'messiness', hence my use of bread clips and rubber bands. There are about 15 layers of paint on the face and background layers. There are scribbles (now hidden) mimicking some of his painted characters on an earlier background layer and his famous crowns painted on his tie. 

Whether or not you're a fan of his, his mark on the art world cannot be denied.

FAQs

  • Q: What is your return policy?
    A: Returns and exchanges can be made at any time. You will be refunded for everything except shipping.

     

  • Q: Does the painting or print arrive signed by the artist? If so, where?
    A: Yes. I sign all my paintings with paint in one of the bottom corners of the canvas, and all my prints with pencil in the bottom right corner of the print. I also include the print number in the bottom left corner of the print and the title in the middle.  

     

  • Q: What kind of paint is used? 
    A: Acrylic. I also use matte gel for texture and sometimes to create what I call a "faux frame," as on the Mad Dog and Raoul paintings.
    I finish all paintings with two coats of varnish. If you require an isolation layer, I can add one however that will increase the final cost. (An isolation layer is a transparent coat of gloss gel that is applied over the acrylic paint and under the coats of varnish. Its purpose is to allow future retouching of the painting, should there ever be a need for this.)
     

  • Q: On which medium does the artist paint?
    A: I usually paint on canvas however I also use wood panels.
