About Jean-Michel Basquiat Tote Bag – Waxed Canvas Bag
This Jean-Michel Basquiat Tote Bag is made in waxed canvas and it features the iconic graffiti style of one of the most influential artists of the New York School. Jean-Michel Basquiat was born in Brooklyn, on December 22, 1960. His family was of Puerto Rican and Haitian descent, and he was the second of four children. His mother, from an early age, instilled in him a love for art that never died and she always took him to art museums in Manhattan, as well as enrolled him as a junior member of the Brooklyn Museum of Art. A naturally gifted child, Basquiat impressed those around him with his early attempts at creation and found that his art was encouraged universally. 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. Covered in clear PVC, this waxed canvas Basquiat Tote Bag is water resistant, and includes a lock to keep all items on the inside safe.
