About Jean-Michel Basquiat Scented Candle – Glenn (1984)
This Ligne Blanche Jean-Michel Basquiat Scented Candle features a well-known painting of Neo-expressionist artist Jean-Michel Basquiat: Glenn (1984). The sensual woody fragrance is elaborated by the luxury French house Givaudan. Just light the candle and let Art and fine scent fill the room for a delightful relaxing break. Our exclusive scented candle collection with a fragrance by Givaudan brings vibrant contemporary artworks into everyday life. This painting most probably represents a portrait of Glenn O’Brien an East Village art and culture journalist Basquiat knew. Basquiat’s portrait of Glenn doesn’t resemble O’Brien at all, instead, it consists of a large mask featuring a black head with wide open mouth and black and white teeth. The mask is surrounded by dozens of papers arranged in a collage. Many of the surrounded notepad pages have similar masks like visages. Check out also the Limoges porcelain collectible plate featuring the same painting. More details Jean-Michel Basquiat Scented Candle – Glenn (1984):

About Jean-Michel Basquiat
Despite his work’s unstudied” appearance, Jean-Michel Basquiat very skillfully and purposefully brought together in his art a host of disparate traditions, practices, and styles to create a unique kind of visual collage, one deriving, in part, from his urban origins, and in another a more distant, African-Caribbean heritage. Basquiat really began his career as a kind of graffiti artist. However, it was his painting style that really got him noticed. What he became best known for was the words, the phrases, the glyphs and the symbols he used and that remain a large part of his visual vocabulary. So, when you look at a Basquiat painting you can also read it. Basquiat “painting style was rough and fresh and very emotional but he really had an understanding of our history.
