Critical Review

The humanoid figure, drawn in incomplete lines, is evocative of other representations of skulls and faces by the artist such as Ernok and Head, which are similarly characterised by fractured, clashing lines and clashing fields of colour. As Hunter Drohojowska writes of Basquiat’s depiction of faces: “Robotoid eyes roll back to the show that the brains are fried, there is no hope there seems to be almost no distillation or interpretation. It is as if the city itself crawled up on these canvases and stomped around. All the clutter and sleaze, energetically defined in crayon, spray paint, Xerox and chicken feathers.”
