Jean-Michel Basquiat - Limoges Porcelain Plate - Large - Pez Dispenser (1984)
About Jean-Michel Basquiat - Ligne Blanche Plate - Large - Pez Dispenser (1984)
Basquiat fused drawing and painting with history and poetry to produce an artistic language and content that was entirely his own. Combining the mediums of graffiti (Magic Marker, spray enamel) with those of fine art (oil and acrylic paint, collage, and oil stick), his best paintings maintain a powerful tension between opposing forces—expression and knowledge, control and spontaneity—while providing acerbic commentary on the harsher realities of race, culture, and society. This plate features Basquiat’s iconic dinosaur drawing wearing a crown, rendered in his immediately recognizable graffiti art style. Basquiat’s dinosaur wearing a crown also refers to the US candy dispensers, Pez thus arguing for a commentary on the American consumerist society and popular culture.
This Limoges porcelain plate, made in France by Ligne Blanche will certainly serve as a statement-worth addition to your tableware collection featuring one of Jean-Michel Basquiat's iconic works.
