I just wanted to let you know how happy I am with your service. When I placed my order I really was not expecting it to arrive before Christmas. So when I came home from work on the 24th and saw the package waiting for me I could hardly believe it! everything was exactly what I ordered and the packaging was top notch. Once again I just wanted to say thank you very much, and you will have me as a customer for life!

Jean-Michel Basquiat

Jean-Michel  Basquiat

(1960 - 1988)
Born: New York, NY
Style: Neo-Expressionism
Famous Works:
  • Untitled (Skull) (1981)
  • Charles the First (1982)
  • King Alphonso (1983)
Jean-Michel Basquiat was the embodiment of the raw, urban, Punk-art revolution that began to spread through New York City in the 1970s and reached full force in the 1980s. Basquiat was poor, a high-school drop out, and homeless, but always making art. Basquiat's presence on the streets and in the clubs of New York City allowed him to meet many of the young, rebellious artists that were beginning to turn the art world on its head. He and Keith Haring dominated the Graffiti art movement as the artists who best leaped from the street scene into the most prestigious galleries, where their work garnered considerable attention and high price tags. Basquiat blended instinctive, expressive lines, scribbled text and fields of bold color with mixed media, forming representations of the issues that were important to him. Basquiat informed much of his work with ideas about his African heritage, institutionalized racism, as well as the New York City counterculture. Jean-Michel Basquiat was only twenty seven years old when he died of a drug overdose in 1988.

I use every day in my studio. I have tried other tapes but none compare with the 3M brand.

I don't know why more people don't know about this glue. I made a layered cardboard box over 15 years ago and it is just like the day I made it. No warping, loose edges,its perfect. And the great thing about it, if you haven't used it in a long time and it seems dried out, put some water in the jar, close the lid and come back next day and it's usable. It's one glue that more is not better. Thin it with a little water and cover the surface using an old credit card or brush. I love it for paper or chipboard or cardboard projects.
