I’m not Basquiat

I'm not Basquiat

In the world of art, there are many different styles and techniques to choose from. Two of the most popular and widely recognized forms of art are street art and contemporary art. Both have their own unique characteristics and appeal, and both have been heavily influenced by the work of the late artist Jean-Michel Basquiat.

"I DON'T THINK SO"

Some people often come to me and say, “Your work looks like Basquiat’s.” Honestly, I don’t think so at first, because who am I compared to one of the greatest of all time? The comparison is so distant that I prefer not to comment on it until now. But here are some thoughts.

Street art, also known as graffiti, is a form of art that is typically created on the streets or in public spaces. It’s freedom, its feeling alive like breathing a good and fresh air from Mr universe.

Contemporary art, on the other hand, is a more traditional form of art that is often created in a studio setting. It is typically more experimental and avant-garde than traditional art, and can encompass a wide range of mediums and styles. Contemporary artists often use new technologies and techniques to create their work, and their pieces can be found in galleries and museums around the world.

Both street art and contemporary art have been heavily influenced by the work of Jean-Michel Basquiat. He was heavily influenced by street art and graffiti, and his work often featured bright colors, bold lines, and powerful imagery. He was considered one of the most important and influential artists of his generation, and his work continues to inspire artists around the world today.

In my personal approach to art, I find myself drawn to the energy and rebellion of street art, but also appreciate the experimentation and thought-provoking nature of contemporary art. And like Basquiat, I strive to combine the two in my work, creating pieces that are both bold and expressive, yet also thought-provoking and meaningful.

In conclusion, street art and contemporary art are two distinct forms of art that both have their own unique appeal. Both have been heavily influenced by the work of Jean-Michel Basquiat, and his legacy continues to inspire artists around the world today. As an artist, I find myself drawn to the energy and rebellion of street art, but also appreciate the experimentation and thought-provoking nature of contemporary art and strive to combine the two in my work.

NOW ME

HERE NOW

I consider myself a contemporary artist, I am always open to improving and using all my creativity in different media and platforms.

Digital creation is something I’ve been doing for as long as I can remember using computers. In 2004 my video game was photoshop and I remember trying to create different things without any high-tech tablets or gadgets.

Revolue Studio - London UK - 2009

The world has changed a lot and in my opinion more when it comes to technology than we as human beings.

The nfts came only to validate and further expand the horizons of those who break artistic barriers through digital means

Have you ever imagined Picasso, Basquiat or DaVinci were alive? How epic would be their creations?

Revolue x ANTIPOP MAG
I created my ANTIPOP magazine in 2015. The purpose was to break barriers between my creations and comfort zone, also to expose different concepts than portraits on canvas or works on paper. I wanted to mix the physical with the digital through scanned and digitally manipulated paper drawings. After a few editions I started to invite artists to create with me and even they in other countries, we made digital file exchanges and each one made their intervention without any type of rule or creative blocks.
