Jean- Michel Basquiat // Research

Basquiat was an American based artist of the late twentieth century , his work is incredibly expressive and raw due to his rough brush markings and natural medium effects. Although his works are incredibly figurative the nature of the work makes viewers look past what is simply on the canvas. The re-working nature of the art creates a sense of re-visiting the work multiple times implying that there has been multiple considerations of it all. This element of re-working and obvious reconsiderations is something I want to be able to apply to my own work to give it greater impact to the audience without being too ominous and intense.
