Jean-Michel Basquiat, Phooey (Artist's Proof), 1982/2021.

This print was released by the Basquiat Estate after Basquiat’s multi-panel collage, Phooey. Completed in 1982, this was produced during Basquiat’s era of experimenting with original drawings and repeated imagery.

Phooey was completed in a period before moving on to photocopied versions of his illustrations and was created by collaging original drawings onto canvas.

In the work, Basquiat can be seen to comment on the limitations of resources and the way in which ownership and commerce play a part in this. Basquiat achieved this through including the copyright symbol alongside words such as 'cents' Most notable of these resources is petroleum but other, more essential, resources such as water are also noted by the artist.

These resources are merged with depictions and descriptions of the human body, showing the inextricable link between humankind, society and the resources we have come to rely upon.

Basquiat dealt with pervasive racism throughout his career. Despite his rapid success, taxis wouldn’t stop for him, so he took limousines everywhere he went. Basquiat was certainly frustrated by the imposed limitations forced upon him and resisted being known as a Black artist, he simply wanted to be known as a great artist. However, he was also 'incredibly connected to the Black experience and to his Blackness' as his sister, Lisane, recalls.
