A portrait of Jean-Michel Basquiat, one of the most influential street-artists of the twentieth century.

This mixed media work is a perfect example of Darren James Macpherson's unique painting style. Reworking the canvas with loose brush strokes and layers of acrylic and spray paint, Darren's street-art approach gives the portrait an energy that truly evokes the subject's character.

Pursuing an MA in Painting from the University of the Arts, Darren James Macpherson explores various urban influences in order to evoke a sense of immediacy and impact in his artwork. 

This work is framed in a hand-made and painted frame by the artist.
