Jean-Michel Basquiat x Lucie Kaas

“I’m not a real person. I’m a legend.” – Jean-Michel Basquiat

Lucie Kaas, in collaboration with Artestar and the Estate of Jean-Michel Basquiat, introduced Basquiat into its curated collection of kokeshi dolls. In his short 27 years, Jean-Michel Basquiat is widely considered one of the most important artists of the 20th century, and his inclusion makes a fitting addition as one of the most iconic and influential artists of his generation. The figures within the collection celebrate both Basquiat’s younger and more mature looks, as well as his works, namely “Evil Thoughts” Originally conceived in 1982 oil on canvas. The collection of figures were also included in the retail arm of the King Pleasure exhibit curated by his two younger sisters.
