Honor and celebrate Jean-Michel Basquiat's iconic artworks. Gold Griot (1984)—originally done in acrylic and oilstick on wood—features a powerful image of a griot character, a narrator of African history, and a mythical talisman. Basquiat explores his cultural heritage and depicts a narrative of Black history, which confronts issues of racism and social inequality, and challenges the constraints of traditional binary oppositions. This incredible painting is featured in the Broad collection and reproduced as an offset lithograph, available exclusively at The Shop at The Broad.
