I ran across this blog about me today. I'm flattered with the modern Jean-Michel Basquiat comment of course. Basquiat has been an influence of mine along with many other artists.

One small correction if I may... Basquiat was painting his famous work in the 80's - not the 60's. (Andy Warhol became a household name in the 60's.) Thanks Kelsey!

 Modern Basquiat?!

So I'm driving through Santa Monica in traffic yesterday and I see out of the corner of my eye, a never ending array of crowns! So naturally, I pull over to see what it is!

This artwork is amazing. I just can't handle the abstract-ness of it. 

So I meet the artist. 
His name is Mark Andrew Allen.

Allen's art reminds me so much of one of my favorite artists of the 60s, Andy Warhol's buddy Jean Michel Basquiat. Even the crown is like a modern version of Basquiat's signature symbol.
