If you're a real Jean-Michel Basquiat fan (test your knowledge here), then you already know where the image above comes from. In 1983, Basquiat designed the cover art and produced a record for graffiti artist Rammellzee titled Beat Bop. Rare copies of Basquiat's vinyl art from Beat Bop will be sold beginning tomorrow by private dealer Ron Kosa for an exhibition called "Lot 180."
According to Art Market Monitor, the Basquiat vinyl will be priced "in the neighborhood of $1,750." Copies from the 2001 limited re-issue will be listed at $650. "Lot 180" will also include pieces by Andy Warhol, Fernando Natalici, Robert Herman, Leni Sinclair, Mike Joyce, and other artists that "focus on mid-1970s and early 1980s New York City and capture the creative whirlwind which so radically influenced the face of American art and culture."
"Lot 180" launches in New York City tomorrow, July 24, at 52 Kenmare Street. Check out some of the preview shots below from their Instagram feed.
