Description

Although based in San Francisco, punk band The Offs regularly mingled with the bustling New York downtown arts scene which was lead by figures such as artist Jean-Michel Basquiat. In 1984, the band released a full length album entitled “The Offs First Record,” for which they collaborated with Basquiat to design the sleeve artwork. This original poster was released to promote the record and features the same iconic Basquiat drawing that appeared on the album cover.

About After Jean-Michel Basquiat

View Profile »

Jean-Michel Basquiat (American, 1960-1988) is an artist internationally renowned for his paintings, prints and texts. Having been a Junior Member of the Brooklyn Museum since the age of six, Basquiat turned to graffiti, poetry and music as a teenager. By his early 20s, he was recognized as one of the most important artists of his generation, and was shown on the cover of The New York Times Magazine in 1985 for the feature "New Art, New Money: The Marketing of an American Artist." His career was tragically cut short after a heroin overdose in 1988.
