DC Shoes x Jean-Michel Basquiat
04 Aug, 2021
A COLLABORATION SHOWCASING TWENTY ONE PAINTINGS FROM BASQUIAT’S TWENTY FIRST YEAR
For 2021, DC Shoes proudly honors the legacy of Jean-Michel Basquiat with a footwear and deck collection featuring 21 paintings from the artist’s most prolific year. During the 1981-82 period when Basquiat was just 21 years old, he engaged in a flurry of productivity, creating some of his most transformative work and staking his place in both the art world and our culture at large. As a brand rooted in skateboarding and streetwear, DC’s collision of 90’s East Coast style and West Coast creativity aligns naturally with Jean-Michel Basquiat’s voice and vision.
