SKull Art: Homage to Basquiat
Method: Adobe Photoshop
I can't really get into painting because I'm gearing up for art stroll night (jafagirl demo for free art friday and chamberpot gallery opening), so I have been playing with ideas for paintings using adobe photoshop. Basquiat is one of my favourite artists, I think because I like the raw quality of the work, the meaning behind it and the colours.
I saw the movie ( David Bowie was brilliant as Warhol) and while the movie was really good , the book Basquiat: A Quick Killing in Art gives an excellent insight into the art market of the time, and a broader picture of who Basquiat was. To see some of his work the Brooklyn Museum website has a great site.

I don't know anybody who needs a critic to find out what art is."
