Basquiat "Fallen Angel" (1981)

This piece is titled "Fallen Angel"(1981) by Basquiat. This piece stuck out to me mainly because after watching the film on Monday in the beginning of class, I was thinking about how his life led him down such a sad road eventually taking his life. Many commentators throughout the film spoke about how Basquiat was such a different kind of person, one quote that I remember stated that "he was too pure for this world." So, when I saw this work when searching through it made me think of exactly that- that Basquiat was viewed as this fallen angel and fulfilled his purpose on Earth by producing these pieces.
