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 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.
