(After) Jean-Michel Basquiat (1960-1988) “Dustheads” - This reproduction is a limited edition (24/150) lithograph with a printed signature imprimee and three-pointed crown moniker of Basquiat measuring approximately 12 x 16 inches. It is based on the original 1982 painting in acrylic, oilstick, spray enamel and metallic paint on canvas measuring 72 x 84 inches created in a Neo Expressionist, graffiti style. Completed when the artist was at the height of his career, the image depicts two skeletal figures with enlarged eyes and mask-like faces against a black background. Bright colors, bold lines and brushstrokes create a sense of energy, emotion, chaos and urgency. The slang term ‘dusthead’ (for users of the drug PC or Angel Dust) indicates that the two characters may be high. Basquiat's ‘Dustheads’ painting sold at auction for $48.8 million in 2013.
