About the artwork:
Jean-Michel Basquiat, Untitled (Heavyweight Champs), n.d.
In his pantheon of heroes, Jean-Michel always reserved a special place for the legendary boxers he revered from Sugar Ray Leonard and Joe Louis, to Cassius Clay and Jersey Joe Walcott. He deeply respected the challenges and adversities these athletes had to overcome to reach their dreams, reflecting Jean-Michel’s own rise in the white-dominated art world.
