The challenge was for us to use our favorite visual artist as an inspiration to show of who we are as artists. I chose to do Jean-Michel Basquiat. his primitivism and Neo Expressionism style is similar to my organized chaos. he doesn't let borders and perfected techniques define his art, all art is subjective and it doesn't need to be perfectly painted to be an idea. Color splashed about and lines drawn in random places is liberating and that's what I feel Jean-Michel gave to us, the freedom of just saying what we want through random color.

The index finger has the famous image of Jean-Michel Basquiat's face outlined in black. The thumb has some abstract art on it with the crown often used by early Basquiat to signify honor or respect for the person he was painting.
