Jean-Michel Basquiat: Dustheads

This painting by Jean-Michel Basquiat is of two figures on PCP (the hallucinogenic drug) and was sold in New York for $48.8 million dollars. I chose this painting because of the use of color but also the controversy that surrounds it. Art critics argue that his work is not worth that much money and they have labeled him as a street artist even though today he is the most collected artist of sportsmen, actors, musicians, and entrepreneurs.
