"Trumpet" 1984
I was drawn to this painting because it resembles the love Basquiat had for Jazz. During all of his sessions he would listen to jazz music and collaborate it with his pieces. He also addresses sports, black identity and music in many of his pieces and in this one he recurs this theme by using jazz music which at the time was well associated with the urban community.
