'Irony of a Negro Policeman, 1981' by Jean-Michel Basquiat is a sharp critique on members of his own race by depicting a black policeman. As a black man growing up in New York, Basquiat believed that black people were subjected to the dominance and control of a white male oppressive policing system. The original painting is a mixture of graffiti and expressionism. Open Edition Set of 3 signed decks.
