About the artwork

Jean-Michel Basquiat, Philistines, 1982

Create in acrylic, and crayon on canvas, Philistines is a vivid representation of three primary figures, each depicted in a tumultuous whirlwind of color and form. The painting evokes African masks that captivated artists like Gauguin and Picasso, and Jean-Michel's style here mirrors that influence. Philistines was originally created for a show in 1982 at the Fun Factory, where prices were set deliberately low to give art enthusiasts across all income levels a chance to own works from artists like Basquiat.
