About Jean-Michel Basquiat Tote Bag - Carrot 85 - Pintrill

This Jean-Michel Basquiat Tote Bag  represents one of the artist's most recognized work: Reok (1985). This beige cotton tote bag comes with a large carrot pin completing the famous painting.

Reok is an awe-inspiring canvas stretching up ten feet and measuring nearly seven feet wide and contains many of the iconographic symbols and elements that pervade Basquiat's work . The word "reok" is written along the bottom of the canvas and may be an invented homophone for the word "rock."  By 1985, the hip-hop movement was in full force and as a connected member of a downtown conglomeration of young street minded artists, Basquiat was exposed to the lyrical, rhythmic stylings of these up and coming musicians who frequently altered language to suit their creative needs.

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.
