Banksy has painted Basquiat-inspired fine arts on the walls of the Barbican, only days before the London gallery is set to open a significant presentation of the late New York craftsman's work.
The two works were first spotted on the walls of the Barbican earlier this week, in front of the kickoff of the Basquiat: Boom for Real presentation tomorrow, 21 September 2017. Banksy – the famously anonymous street artist – affirmed he was behind them through his Instagram account.
The larger of the two pieces appear to be Banksy's own take on Jean-Michel Basquiat's Boy and Dog in a Johnnypump, created in 1982.
It depicts a figure being frisked by two police officers, and is captioned with "Portrait of Basquiat being welcomed by the Metropolitan Police – an (unofficial) collaboration with the new Basquiat show."
