Basquiat vs Hirst

Leave a comment

Damien Hirst’s ‘For the Love of God’ versus Jean-Michel Basquiat, something like a parody I am working on using Procreate, or as I like to call it, a Mahaloness digi painting. An homage to both Hirst, living, and to Basquiat, who is no longer with us, sadly. It brings into question the morality of the art world, in terms of the excess, and in the case Jean-Michel Basquiat, subsequent tragedy.
