“The deep connection to colours is what connects us.” With this device, artist Kim Kluge portrays people and their colours. True colors Basquiat shows Kim’s interpretation of artist Jean-Michel Basquiat. The felt used to create this work is a subject of the very topical theme ‘social warmth’.
Jean Michel Basquiat’s main color is golden yellow. Sunny mind. Inter- woven with earthy browns and orange, the color of the sunrise. His artistic work conveys significance and childlike, striking ease. Those were his strong points. The combination of these three warm natural tones point to the depth in its essence.
