Find your swagger and coronate yourself with the Artware-exclusive mirror celebrating Basquiat's trademark crown and an excerpt of text in the artist's own handwriting taken from his prolific writings. Line your reflection up with the crown and let the text inspire you to become the best version of yourself out on the streets. The 24" diameter mirror comes ready to hang with a simple wooden mounting bracket.
The text, which reads "It all depends who you are on what street," comes from one of the artist's notebooks from the 1980s which were recently published in facsimile by Princeton University Press. From the publisher, "The notebooks are filled with images and words that recur in Basquiat's paintings and other works. Iconic drawings and pictograms of crowns, teepees, and hatch-marked hearts share space with handwritten texts, including notes, observations, and poems that often touch on culture, race, class, and life in New York. Like his other work, the notebooks vividly demonstrate Basquiat’s deep interests in comic, street, and pop art, hip-hop, politics, and the ephemera of urban life. They also provide an intimate look at the working process of one of the most creative forces in contemporary American art.
