Jean Michel Basquiat

16th Mar 2022

Jean Michel Basquiat (December 22, 1960 – August 12, 1988) is the historical street artist behind these colourful and vibrant ‘Street Art’ pictures by year 6. The children were eventually able to lose their inhibition about wanting to create the ‘perfect’ picture and learned to be fearless - drawing with vitality the pictures they wanted to create. They were bold in their line drawing. Sketching quickly and be undaunted by their use of colour.

These drawings are part of the current art exhibition at Chigwell Independent school.
