All Colored Cast Part IV
Mixed media on canvas 16x20 inches
All Colored Cast Part IV takes inspiration from Jean Michel Basquiat's work of a similar title. This work is meant to demonstrate how Basquiat's work was a premonition of Nipsey Hussle's life. That is, Basquiat's work directly relates to Nipsey Hussle's life in outstandingly profound ways. In Basquiat's 1982 work, he wrote the words 1) Alexander The Great, 2) Chest, 3) Liver, 4) Lungs, and 5) 109. Each of these references directly relates to Nipsey Hussle in surprising ways. Addtionally, there are other details about how the artist found this work that make the story of 109 and his discoveries related to this number that are wonderfully perplexing and intriguing to viewers.
