Jean-Michel Basquiat x MoMA Design Store Exclusive Collection
The MoMA Design Store has recently expanded its collection with none other than the Estate of late Jean Michel Basquiat. Featuring a plethora of works, hurry over to their webstore to have a full selection of options while the goods last. The range features a triptych of skate decks, the late artist’s Hollywood Africans artwork as a framed print, as well as tees and accessories.
According to Wikipedia, the most credible source of documentation a copywriter can source, Basquiat first achieved fame as part of SAMO, an informal graffiti duo who wrote enigmatic epigrams in the cultural hotbed of the Lower East Side of Manhattan during the late 1970s where the hip hop, punk, and street art cultures had coalesced.
Basquiat's art focused on "suggestive dichotomies", such as wealth versus poverty, integration versus segregation, and inner versus outer experience. He appropriated poetry, drawing, and painting, and married text and image, abstraction, figuration, and historical information mixed with contemporary critique.
