Original artwork description:

A part of a series turning my favourite artists into icons. Jean-Michel Basquiat was one of my favourite artists, an icon who created absolute genius from the streets to canvases. I love his story but was so saddened hearing about the end of his life. This icon is entitled 'I Wish You Were Here to See What You've Become' because his life was spent striving for true recognition, something he's only truly received in death.
Celebrated by many, this icon celebrates his life and achievements through a series of symbols. It acts as a visual storytelling of his life. Once purchased I can send you a full breakdown of every symbol used in the image.

Please get in contact if you'd like to commission an icon, I can turn any popular culture figure, a relative like your grandma, or even yourself into an icon. The personal icons will start with an interview to find out the symbols from your life, these can be in the form of 3d sculpture frame or digital print.

Materials used:

Acrylic Paint, Polymer Clay, Digital Print, Collected Curio
