Inspired by New York's famous graffiti artist Jean Michel-Basquiat - himself the icon of the graffiti art world - Pakpoom's collaborative art project  "Memorising Jean Michel-Basquiat" combines Basquiat's spray can and crown logo trademark with Andy Warhol's signature repetition technique. 

Hundreds of resin spray cans and crowns will be installed on shelves inside a gigantic glass box. This installation piece aims to reflect the collaborative process that involves the ideas and signatures of two art movements and two artists from different eras.

Basquiat's works, despite failing to wow the contemporary audience during his lifetime, are rich in confidence and honesty and these qualities directly influence Pakpoom

"It's a combination between street art and pop art but the result is urban art that is related to everyday life. I don't expect people to understand the hidden messages, but hope to spark the new ideas and inspirations," says  Pakpoom who has lived in London for 17 years. - << The Nation >>
