Arty Tuesday: Basquiat – Earth

Last Basquiat post for January. Again, take a look at Tuesday Nights in 1980 by Molly Prentiss if you’re into the NYC art scene of that era. Great read!

Earth by Jean-Michel Basquiat (1984)

I love the simplicity of this piece. It has Basquiat’s energy but is so much leaner than most of his pieces. I liked to think he was in a contemplative mode when he created it.
