About Herschel Basquiat Backpack (Classic XL) – Untitled-Skull (1981)

This Classic XL Herschel Basquiat Backpack is part of an exclusive collaboration between Herschel Supply Co. and the Estate of Jean-Michel Basquiat. This collaborative backpack displays Basquiat's signature style throughout the sturdy canvas exterior for a colorful style. The roomy main compartment features a 15" laptop sleeve and a collaborative woven patch within. The exterior comes equipped with an additional zip compartment with built-in key clip and two water bottle sleeves for extra storage. This hershel Basquiat backpack design is finished with padded and adjustable shoulder straps and topped off with Basquiat's crown logo embroidered above Herschel's signature woven brand tag, creating a one-of-a-kind design that celebrates the legendary artist's iconic style. 1980s art icon and native New Yorker Jean-Michel Basquiat was hailed for works that draw on a multivalent range of sources, from Greek, Roman, and African art to jazz, pop culture and his artistic contemporaries. Before he rose to art stardom, however, his work was already legendary on the streets of downtown NYC. Under the tag SAMO©, Basquiat's fragmented poetry and poignant symbols established a visual vocabulary that continues to inspire a new generation of graffiti artists today.

Jean-Michel Basquiat was a New York City born and raised artist, musician, and producer. As part of the street art group named SAMO, Basquiat took advantage of a larger exposure of his art. Their art was known for their enigmatic epigrams displayed throughout the streets of Manhattan’s Lower East Side. Basquiat art style focused on themes such as wealth versus poverty, integration versus segregation. His unique combination of text and image contributed to his fame. His pieces, such as Irony of Negro Policeman, were strongly political and direct in their address of power structure and systems of racism. Basquiat’s young life ended tragically at the age of 27. However, hundreds of artists still honor his risky and subversive artistic insight. His countercultural focus helped usher in the idea that street art was, in fact, real art. Moreover, his social commentary has had a lasting and powerful effect.
