Jean-Michel Basquiat - Ascent
I chose to do the piece "Ascent" by Jean-Michel Basquiat. Basquiat created this piece in 1983 and I like it for a number of reasons. First, his color choice allows for contrast, depth and gives the piece personality. I also like the fact that it is an abstract work. Basquiat used a couple different techniques to create the piece and thats what makes it unique. Finally, I like how he created, then scribbled out a section of the work; whether it was done on purpose or done as an artistic way to cover up a mistake, I feel it helps make the piece stand out.
