About Jean-Michel Basquiat Espresso Set – “AAA” – Limoges Porcelain
This Limoges porcelain Basquiat Espresso Set AAA features the iconic New York School graffiti artist Jean-Michel Basquiat’s work “Untitled” made in 1981. Made by Limoges-Based company Ligne Blanche this beautiful porcelain pin tray features the signature “Porcelaine de Limoges” attesting to its high-quality standards. Like Andy Warhol and other Pop Artists, Basquiat eloquently critiqued the elitist pedestal of art through his popular culture references and immediately recognizable imagery. Basquiat also presented challenges to the institution of Art, along with the graffiti artist Keith Haring, who both served as intermediary artists attempting to bridge the academically-trained artistic production with that of the intuitive and non-traditional graffiti art. Born a naturally gifted child for the arts, Jean-Michel Basquiat impressed those around him with his early attempts at creation and found that his art was encouraged universally. Basquiat and his friend, Al Diaz, made names for themselves spray painting graffiti on buildings in Lower Manhattan, under the group-tag of SAMO (Same Old Shit) in 1976. Aside from challenging the institution of art, Basquiat is also known for raising awareness of socio-cultural and racial issues during his time.
