Studio Sundays: the Art Studio of Basquiat

Every Sunday we give you a behind-the-scenes tour into the heart of creativity, the artist's studio. This week we visit the art studio of the famous artist Jean Michel Basquiat, an artist weel-know for bringing street art to canvas. This space is super raw, not very cozy at all, I imagine that he would just get in there - do the work for the day and then get the heck outta there. What I love about this studio is the space and the utilitarian nature. I would not feel bad about spilling paint on that floor, would you?
