The Skateroom x Jean-Michel Basquiat - Skateboard Triptych Horn Players (1983)
Bringing together tradition and contemporary culture, this Jean-Michel Basquiat Skateboard Triptych features a reproduction of Basquiat's work Horn Players (1983). Jean-Michel Basquiat was an avid jazz listener and musician in his own right, and this work shows the relationship between his improvisational style of painting and the alchemy of jazz composition. This painting is an homage to the great horn players Charlie Parker and Dizzy Gillespie. On the left is Parker with his alto saxophone and on the right is Gillespie with his trumpet. Both players are considered among the best jazz musicians ever, and their influential style of bebop resonates loudly throughout the history of modern jazz.
