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



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 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.
