A trio of skateboards depict Irony of a Negro Policeman, in which Basquiat controversially critiques the African-American police officers in his community. Believing the government and law enforcement are constructs to further enslave his people, he expresses his disbelief and frustration in this dark, provocative piece. Over thirty-five years later and relevant as ever, this work offers a social commentary and opportunity for discourse on justice and repression. This statement piece could serve equally well as a stand-alone piece against a bold wall or as a strong design anchor amidst a black-and-white gallery wall.
