Artistic license from New York to Novi Sad
Oh, Novi Sad. Critiquing street graffiti AND citing one of my favorite artists? I heart you.
Basquiat was a NYC graffiti artist who eventually broke into the high art world, becoming friends with Andy Warhol and briefly dating a little-known musician named Madonna. His art continued to be influenced by graffiti until his fatal overdose at the age of 28.
It seems that someone in Novi Sad saw a little too much similarity between the work on this wall and the work of Basquiat. It seems more like inspiration than copying to me,
