SAMO SAMO Situation
In honor of PHT and his annual pilgrimage to NYC, AKA Art Mecca, with various UMB fortunates this past weekend, and in honor of my reading of this new (to me) Basquiat book, I’m posting a shot of my fav Warhol and Basquiat collaboration: And the piece I was lucky enough to spy in person last year at this time upstairs at Acquavella, when I was able to join said annual pilgrimage. I have to say, turning a corner and coming face-to-face with this immense work, this in-person display of the image that had me personally experimenting with oil sticks (a la the now defunct painting Piet and the Egg) was a marvelous moment in my personal art history. If I’d had the cash, I would have plunked it down right then and there. Enjoy.
