In addition to showcasing one of Jean-Michel Basquiat’s most instantly recognizable motifs, the three-point crown, the new Jean-Michel Basquiat Basketball, by round21 acts as a canvas for the selected work “Philistines, 1982” artwork that depicts three figures layered over an intricate ground of color and marks. 

Similar figures are seen throughout Basquiat’s work, drawing inspiration from traditional African masks, anatomical drawings, and religious imagery. The title of the piece works both as a biblical reference and a description of the figures, deeming the subjects of this expressive work uninterested in or critical of the media in which they exist.
