Introducing a medium weight fleece hoodie that showcases Basquiat's iconic artwork "Now's the Time" printed across the center front of the black hoodie. This eye-catching piece also includes a convenient kangaroo pocket at the front.

Let's delve into the significance of the artwork: "Now's the Time," created in 1985, is a bold and large work on plywood that pays homage to Basquiat's idol, Charlie Parker, and his Bebop music. The title itself is a reference to one of Parker's compositions. Basquiat's deep passion for jazz and Bebop is evident in his extensive record collection, which reportedly consisted of around 3,000 LPs. The influence of this musical genre on the artist is profound and can be seen in the energy and rhythm of his artwork.

By wearing this hoodie, you not only embrace the comfort and style of a well-crafted garment but also carry a piece of Basquiat's artistic brilliance with you. The prominent display of "Now's the Time" on the front, combined with the practical kangaroo pocket, creates a unique and captivating aesthetic. It's a fashionable statement that celebrates Basquiat's love for jazz and allows you to express your appreciation for his art in a truly stylish manner.

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.
