Official Collector Edition.

This special edition Jean-Michel Basquiat basketball features a select work, “Philistines, 1982,” now on the canvas of sport.

STORY:

Jean-Michel Basquiat is widely considered one of the most influential artists of his time.

This Jean-Michel Basquiat x round21 Collector Edition basketball includes officially licensed artwork emblematic of Basquiat’s edgy, raw style and bold use of color and texture.

As an artist, Jean-Michel Basquiat often incorporated words, letters, logos and other urban motifs into his paintings.

Now, round21 brings Basquiat’s work to a new generation—through the art of sport.

THE ARTIST: JEAN-MICHEL BASQUIAT

Jean-Michel Basquiat is one of the best known artists of his generation and is widely considered one of the most important artists of the 20th century. His career in art spanned the late 1970s through the 1980s until his death in 1988, at the age of 27.

Basquiat works are edgy and raw, and through a bold sense of color and composition, he maintains a fine balance between seemingly contradictory forces such as control and spontaneity, menace and wit, urban imagery and primitivism. The Basquiat brand embodies the values and aspirations of young, international urban culture.

The conjunction of various media is an integral element of Basquiat's art. His paintings are typically covered with text and codes of all kinds: words, letters, numerals, pictograms, logos, map symbols, diagrams and more, and featured multi-panel paintings and individual canvases with exposed stretcher bars, the surface dense with writing, collage and imagery.
