Self-portrait. 1982. Jean-Michel Basquiat.
The works of Jean-Michel Basquiat are impregnated with this characteristic air graffitero, that reflect the result of his artistic experience in the urban world of the streets of Brooklyn. Also we find many works inside his production in which it introduces phrases, words or references, like SAMO, that was the signature that he was using.
In some works like Electric cord, of the year 1984, it demonstrates a clear archaic influence and primitivista, as well as an influence of the African American roots. The fragmentation and the decomposition also are part of his artistic treatment.
