“King Nothing And The Discovery Of The Lost Venus (For SAMO)” is a love story and homage to Basquiat, as well as a tribute to the many historical paintings of Venus that preceded it and the many that will come after it. Can you spot the crown? I was recently asked to describe my work, to which I responded…“Imagine the love child of van Gogh and Basquiat.”
