This is a Basquiat painting. It is an untitled skull made in 1984. Basquiat was a graffiti artist. I liked this painting because it shows elements of urban life. It is interesting because of the use of bright colors in the background and darker colors inside the skull. There are many sections inside the skull which can be a representation of many thoughts. The top of the skull has darker colors which can represent darker thoughts while the bottom may represent happier thoughts.
