KOMONO夥拍塗鴉先烈Jean-Michel Basquiat

Jean_Michel

在七、八十年代,美國pop art藝壇除了有西岸的Andy Warhol,還有他──Jean-Michel Basquiat。如果說前者是酒池肉林的貴公子,那後者肯定是不知天高地厚的街頭鬥士。兩人風格、背景迥異,卻因緣際會成了拍檔,有人這樣解釋:Jean-Michel需要Warhol的名氣來上位,而當時江郎才盡的Warhol則需要Jean-Michel的藝術天份來刺激自己。

Jean-Michel Basquiat自小已展現出過人的繪畫天分,離開家後,他白天靠著兜售T恤和自製的明信片維生,晚上則變身塗鴉大師,以曼哈頓的大樓牆壁作為畫布進行「創作」,並留下「SAMO」記號。Jean-Michel Basquiat的塗鴉個人風格甚濃,他喜將文字融入畫作中,作品裡也不乏帶有政治意味的創作,深深影響了後來的街頭塗鴉界。

Jean-Michel在27歲那年死於用藥過量,在他短短十多年創作生涯中,不但留下了無數塗鴉作品,還有一支rap single。想了解更多關於Jean-Michel Basquiat的生平,不妨參考紀錄片《The Radiant Child》

今年,配件品牌KOMONOJean-Michel Basquiat的塗鴉藝術重現在大家眼前,品牌複製了六幅Jean-Michel作品,並將畫作複印在布料上、剪裁成錶帶,每一條錶帶都是畫作的一部分,使得每隻手錶都是獨一無二。
