Jean-Michel Basquiat (1960-88) used text and imagery in his dramatic work. He was fluent in at least three languages, and formed a noise rock band in addition to being an artist. This plate, made in France, features his work The Dingoes that park their brain with their gum (1988).
Basquiat lived in Los Angeles for more than six months in 1983 and he formed important connections with local collectors and the Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA) here during that time. LACMA's collections include many contemporary artists.
