About Basquiat – Ligne Blanche Small Porcelain Plate – Untitled 1 (1982)
This Jean-Michel Basquiat Ligne Blanche Small Porcelain plate is made in fine Limoges Porcelain by the Limoges-based company Ligne Blanche, featuring the artist’s iconic graffiti style in his work Untitled 1 (1982). 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.
