Art Description

Painting: Acrylic, Oil on Canvas.

Jean-Michel Basquiat is my favorite artist. When i began painting at age 18, I was painting in a similar style to JMB before I knew who he was, when I had no support/understanding from my family about not going to college and going all in to pursue the life of an artist. When i discovered him, his style instantly connected to me like something i can't describe, and it inspired me to believe in myself even more. This image is taken from a portrait of the artist from a series he did in his studio in the 80's.

American Myths & Practical Treasures is an on-going series I've been working on for 4 years, and will eventually be the title of a solo show when I figure out when its complete.

I like the juxtaposition of the gun against his head, the bright pop of varied colors and the overall chaos that is at the same time calming.
