Blackwing Volume No. 57

The latest limited edition pencil by Blackwing is dedicated to the artist Jean-Michel Basquiat. He is one of the best known artists of his generation and is widely considered one of the most important artists of the 20th century. Works that are edgy and raw, he used a bold sense of color and composition, while maintaining a fine balance between seemingly contradictory forces such as: control and spontaneity; menace and wit; urban imagery and primitivism.

The integration of various media is an integral element of Basquiat’s art. His paintings are typically covered with text and codes of all kinds: words, letters, numbers, pictograms, logos, map symbols, diagrams and more. His works feature multi-panel paintings and individual canvases with exposed stretcher bars, the surface dense with writing, collage and imagery.

The Blackwing 57 is a tribute to Jean-Michel Basquiat's boundary-pushing art. The number 57 is a reference to 57 Great Jones Street in New York City, where Basquiat created some of his best-known works.
