|Artista: Basquiat Jean-Michel||Base: 21,4 cm|
|Supporto: Paper||Altezza: 16 cm|
The title of this work is derived from the phrase written by Basquiat The Kangaroo woman who makes the rain ... "the kangaroo woman who does the rain is to cleanse the sick souls". In this work the inspiration to the graffiti and the tribal art is more evident than ever: the central face looks like an African mask, the figure below is a shepherd with his sheep (maybe one of the sick souls?) While the his right looks like an African idol.
Basquiat's pop art is much rougher than that of his colleague and friend Warhol, he comes from the street and from there he draws his strength of social denunciation. A subversive scope that the contemporary market, which has sold his works to considerable numbers, has tried in some way to anesthetize. Perhaps this misunderstanding has caused the collapse of the already fragile personality of Basquiat, who dies only 27 years old killed by drugs he had always abused.
The work was printed for the inauguration of the exhibition "Jean Michel Basquiat - Bilder, 1984-1986" at the Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac, Salzburg, Austria, July-August 1986.
Color offset lithograph. 1984. Printed in 1986. Signed in black marker, lower right. Limited edition.
Jean-Michel Basquiat was born on December 22, 1960, in Brooklyn, New York. He was the son of a Haitian-American father and a Puerto Rican mother. Since a very young age Basquiat shows an interest for art and his mother encouraged his artistic talent by taking him to art museums around New York city.
In 1968 his parents get divorced, and in 1976 he attended "City as A School", an alternative high school for talented students who failed at conventional schooling. The same years, when he was 17 years old, Basquiat starts to use drugs and begins to fill the streets of Manhattan with graffiti under the name "SAMO" a tag for Same Old Shit. His graffitis are revolutionary or senseless phrases like SAMO© SAVES IDIOTS, and often in his drawings he added words or phrases that oftentimes were crossed out.

if you LIVE IN EU
If you live in Europe (CEE) the price we show you already includes taxes. The works are taxed either with VAT exposed (22%) or VAT with the margin, if you are a private person you do not change anything, if you are a company: in In the first case, you will recover the VAT, in the second, no. When you put the works in the cart you will be separated from the vat exposed.
If you DON'T LIVE IN EU and you want an EXTRA EU shipping
Many works (not all) have an exposed VAT of 22% included in the price, this vat will be spun off! Obviously you will pay the VAT to your destination country, if due. For example if you live in Switzerland you save 22% but you will have to pay 7.7% to your customs, if you live in Hong Kong you will save 22% and you will not have to pay anything to your customs (lucky you).
