About the artwork:
Untitled (Skull), 1982
Fascinated by anatomy from a young age (his mother gave him a copy of Gray’s Anatomy when he was 7), heads and skulls became recurring images in Basquiat’s work. Many consider the heads Basquiat painted as some of his most autobiographical work. Deeply rooted in his identity as a Black artist in America, Jean-Michel's use of heads and skulls are evocative of African masks and also allude to his father’s Haitian heritage.
