>>> BASQUIAT >2
******************************

 in the popular realm, people recognize his revolutionary imagery, but...Basquiat was a "Painter"

...the style in these drawings are influenced by the total freedom and irreverence that was a hallmark of the work of the late Jean Michael Basquiat. Part social criticism, parody and mainly an influence based focus on expression and reexpression. There was no end game, just a point that the drawing ceased.


...my composition and use of text is mainly stylistic. The words are directed to a message but it is intentionally unsophisticated compred to Basquiats Cerebral use of text. For me the words are abstract marks and color. 


Basically this approach to drawing / painting is an abstract sensibility although it is pictorial. The over layering is what obscures the whole pictorial sense and makes the composition more of a blend of texture, color and marks. A main difference in my work is that I first put down a central image and then text that is readable...then Ibegan to over write, cross out, over paint and re letter to form the layered / textural sense of this image style.
