About the artwork:
Jean-Michel Basquiat, Pez Dispenser, 1984
In this work, Jean-Michel Basquiat explores the theme of popular culture and his memories of childhood by featuring a dinosaur adorned with the artist's trademark crown symbol. The title references the candy company Pez and its dispensers shaped like popular culture characters. Through the use of recognizable imagery and references to a well-known brand, Basquiat masterfully draws attention to the pervasive nature of consumer culture in 1980s America. Basquiat's Iconic Crown For Jean-Michel, the crown represented the struggle for power and recognition, particularly for marginalized communities. By incorporating crowns into his paintings and drawings, he celebrated the strength of these groups, while also critiquing the systems that sought to oppress them.
