Hommage 2020

Inspired by the the 1981 "Untitled (Black King Catch Scorpio)" painting by Jean Michel Basquiat that sold for $23.5 million at #christies #newyork

In 2012. I decided to pick this painting because this pandemic has us going crazy, fighting for toilet paper and food, mass unemployment and slimply put, panic has brought a sadistic and brutal approach to life. I felt like #jeanmichelbasquiat captured this chaos and explosion of emotions in his artwork while putting the art industry at awe with his style; completely dominating the 80s. It was only a matter of time and which painting I wanted to include in the Hommage series and I'm glad this fits the bill. Its fun, full of color and DasB'd. Also the Balaclava and the crackhead teeth were a great touch
