About the artwork: Jean-Michel Basquiat often created skull and head paintings throughout his career. His use of skulls is rooted in his identity as a Black artist in America, with the gestural painting reminiscent of African masks. They also present his Haitian heritage on Basquiat’s father’s side—specifically the Vodou religion, which is full of skull symbolisms.
