“The black person is the protagonist in most of my paintings. I realized that I didn’t see many paintings with black people in them.” – Jean-Michel Basquiat 

This month ArtJamz is celebrating Jean-Michel Basquiat for Black History Month with our guided class “Paint like Basquiat” . Basquiat is an American painter and  arguably one of the most famous artist in recent history. His painting “Untitled” from 1982 sold for $110.5 million dollars in an recent auction. Basquiat is one of very few painters to break the $100 million mark. He started with little to nothing and used his unique painting style to become an American icon. Combine figure painting and abstraction just like Jean-Michael Basquiat in our “Paint like Basquiat” class this month and learn more about this powerful figure in Black History. The class will be led by one of our jammin’ instructors and take you step by step through your very own Basquiat style painting.
