About this Art

The framing option for this RUN includes a 1 inch black wood frame with UV-glass, foam core backing and ready to hang hardware.

"The first piece in the series chronologically “Our Lady Afeni” was made to represent Basquiat’s first pieces when he first painted on canvas. He was using lots vibrant colors that were spread out throughout the canvas. So as I was doing research on Tupac I saw that while his mom (Afeni) was pregnant with him she got locked up for her involvement with the Panther 21 party. In an interview she said that the cops busted in her place and stuck a gun to her belly. Tupac also wrote a lot of songs throughout his career about a woman’s struggle, so that’s where some of the other iconography comes from. “Keep Ya Head Up” samples Roger and Zapp, so we’ve got the Zapp logo behind the gun. That song, and a lot of Tupac’s music references Marvin Gaye, so we’ve got that record in there, with the iconic Baquait crown above and the Tamla Motown label below. In the bottom corner this piece has Tupac’s Queen Nefertiti tattoo with 2 Die 4 written beneath it." - Naturel
