Jean-Michel Basquiat: Return of the Central Figure Plate

Regular price Regular price $150

Produced by Ligne Blanche in Paris in collaboration with the Estate of Jean-Michel Basquiat, this Limoges porcelain plate is based on an untitled painting from 1983 by Basquiat. Here, the artist depicts himself as an oracle, sporting wide eyes and dreadlocks and spouting his inner musings. Basquiat also marked his image with an upward-pointing arrow, perhaps signifying the transition from external observation to internal contemplation. With the addition of repeated phrases and symbols, this iconic self-portrait captures both the artist’s inner thoughts and his outwardly projected identity.
