Faces of Basquiat

Inspired by Jean-Michel Basquiat

Jenny Leonard was inspired by American artist Jean-Michel Basquiat, who rose to success during the 1980s as part of the Neo-expressionism movement.

His colourful bold work and the fact that things are out of proportion gave Jenny the chance to layer up the paint and go a bit wild on the sculpture.
