Jean-Michel Basquiat Espresso Set - "AAA" - Limoges Porcelain

About Jean-Michel Basquiat Espresso Set - "AAA" - Limoges Porcelain

This Limoges porcelain Basquiat Espresso Set AAA features the iconic New York School graffiti artist Jean-Michel Basquiat’s work “Untitled” made in 1981. Made by Limoges-Based company Ligne Blanche this beautiful porcelain pin tray features the signature “Porcelaine de Limoges” attesting to its high-quality standards.  Like Andy Warhol and other Pop Artists, Basquiat eloquently critiqued the elitist pedestal of art through his popular culture references and immediately recognizable imagery. Basquiat also presented challenges to the institution of Art, along with the graffiti artist Keith Haring, who both served as intermediary artists attempting to bridge the academically-trained artistic production with that of the intuitive and non-traditional graffiti art. Born a naturally gifted child for the arts, Jean-Michel Basquiat impressed those around him with his early attempts at creation and found that his art was encouraged universally. Basquiat and his friend, Al Diaz, made names for themselves spray painting graffiti on buildings in Lower Manhattan, under the group-tag of SAMO (Same Old Shit) in 1976.  Aside from challenging the institution of art, Basquiat is also known for raising awareness of socio-cultural and racial issues during his time.

    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.
