This iconic visual is an untitled piece originally presented at Basquiat's debut solo exhibition in New York City. Skull, as it came to be known, features a deconstructed figure that plays heavily on the contrast between inner and outer elements – a suggested dichotomy prominent in many of Basquiat's works. Though the piece seems easy to understand at first glance, a deeper look leaves us wondering what message the mythical artist truly wanted to convey. Open Edition Set of 3 'Skull' Skateboard Decks by the Estate of Jean-Michel Basquiat. Licensed by ARTESTAR, NEW YORK.
About the Artist
Before Basquiat rose to become one of the most significant artists of the 20th century, his work was already legendary on the streets of downtown NYC. Under the tag SAMO, his poetic and poignant symbols established a visual vocabulary that continues to inspire new generations of graffiti artists to this day. Needless to say, we are very happy with the final results and we hope we’ve made him proud.
