    I love Basquiat’s work. There’s a lot of passion and intensity in that painting.

    There is something about the way spray paint behaves that is just so amazing. I keep going back to the lower left-hand side of this painting, where the white spray and black spray intersect. There are drips, thick spots, thin spots, round spots, wispy over-spray and the straight lines have rounded edges. Stencils can do similar things, but you can’t really recreate the exact effect with anything other than spray paint.
