About the artwork:


This solemn portrait of Jean-Michel Basquiat honors the complex journey of the artist. Starting as an anonymous street artist in New York City, Basquiat rose to become a revered master while facing relentless scrutiny from the media and art world, which added to his inner struggles.


About the series:

Blending the visual language of street art with traditional fine art techniques  ‘Fame and Fortune’ takes a critical look at pop culture. This series juxtaposes the glamour of celebrity with the realities of how icons are often viewed, consumed and exploited. Dunce emphasizes this point by utilizing the grittiness of torn up street posters he has reclaimed from city walls and billboards.

Basquiat, 2023
