Jean-michel Basquiat £27 note
Number 5 in my series of 6 defaced £27 notes. The '27' club is a unique club of iconic artists that sadly left us too early. Each note is modified to represent each individual artist.
#5 in the collection represents Jean-Michel Basquiat. Basquiat was born in 1960 and first achieved fame as part of SAMO. Jean-michel started life as a graffiti artist and became an important part of the art movement in the 80's, with collaborations with Andy Warhol.
Basquiat died in August 1988 after a battle with drug addiction.
