As a professional artist, Jean-Michel Basquiat loved to play with color and use it in many different ways in his artworks. In this painting, “Crown”, he portrayed the crown on a canvas using vivid black paint and filled it with thorn pages as a background.
The crown has always been used to symbolize royalty, nobility, and power. The same can be said about this canvas, which combines a black crown with thorn pages and various writings. As you can see in most works of Jean-Michel Basquiat, this image is not accidental. It appears in many other paintings, making it a unique element of his style. It is one of the most recognizable symbols in his art creations repetitively.
A reference to Basquiat’s crowns, the crowns on his canvases seemed to have a double meaning. It could be interpreted as a sign of praise or reverence for his black warriors, but it also could represent the wearing of a crown as an artist. The image itself implies its crowned artist, who has reached a higher level of consciousness and majesty.
Whether you love Basquiat’s persona or simply admire his work – this stunning Basquiat Crown Canvas can fit any decorative style.
