Comments and reviews of “Jean Michel Basquiat

  • Craig Petreikis says:

    Judge #5 Comments – A giant visage of Basquiat towers over a city. It seems as though he is being consumed by the internal fury of fire within. Or are the fire-like colors evidence of raised arms with missing hands, while empty boxing gloves are floating on the right? Nearby, a silhouette of the artist tries to hail a cab that has just sped by him–a not uncommon occurrence to people of the African Diaspora in 1980s NYC. Do both symbols connote a lack of agency or power on his part?
