Irony of Negro Policeman Print, 1981
Irony of Negro Policeman (1982) is Jean-Michel Basquiat’s sharp critique on the position of a Black policeman while providing social commentary about the social isolation and repression of African Americans in a white-dominated society. Originally done in acrylic, crayon, and canvas, this powerful work is reproduced in exquisite detail as a digital giclee poster.
