Basquiat | Hollywood Africans

Jean-Michel Basquiat is my favorite artist that we learned about this semester. His artwork is unlike anything I've ever seen among famous artists. He has such an original style about his work, using simple and abstract symbols, lines, and words to get his point across. In this piece, entitled "Hollywood Africans," Basquiat uses stars, footprints, and words like "tobacco" and "gangsterism" to create a central yet abstract theme regarding Hollywood.
