Description

Introducing a 100% green cotton twill dad cap that showcases Basquiat's iconic gold crown motif, expertly embroidered onto the front of the hat. This cap also features a convenient buckle strap, allowing you to easily adjust it for the perfect fit.

About the artwork: Basquiat's crown motif is a powerful symbol that frequently appears in his artwork, and has become synonymous with his unique style. The first appearance of the crown can be traced back to his piece titled "Red Kings" in 1981. Throughout his body of work, Basquiat used the crown to represent Black men as saints and kings, highlighting their strength and significance. By incorporating the crown symbol, Basquiat pays homage to his influences and heroes, portraying them and himself as regal figures.

This dad cap not only showcases Basquiat's artistic brilliance, but also serves as a tribute to the power and influence of Black individuals. The gold crown embroidery on the front of the hat adds a touch of elegance and significance, making it a statement piece that goes beyond mere fashion.

Crafted from high-quality green cotton twill, this cap offers both style and comfort. The buckle strap ensures a secure and adjustable fit, allowing you to wear it with ease. Whether you wear it to express your admiration for Basquiat's work, or simply as a fashionable accessory, this dad cap is a must-have addition to your collection.

Basquiat

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.
