About the artwork:
Jean-Michel Basquiat, Untitled (Skull), 1983
Many consider the heads Basquiat painted as some of his most autobiographical symbols. 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, while also serving as a memento mori for followers of his work.
