Jean-Michel Basquiat, The Radiant Child

March 7, 2010 at 19:08 Leave a comment

“The Radiant Child is a film about one of the most important visual artists in American history Jean-Michel Basquiat. The film was directed by the artists’ friend Tamara Davis, who started the task years ago, but decided to shelve the project after Basuiat’s tragic death. After 20 years the film debuted at this year’s Sundance Film festival. It is always good to get an intimate look at creative genius, and Basquiat represents the epitome of creativity.”

Reebok will release its new version of their popular Pump Omni Lite silhouette for the 2010 Spring/Summer season. The kicks are a continuation of the collection that also included the Reebok Ex-O-Fit High & Freestyle “Basquiat”. Jean-Michel Basquiat has made a name in the 1980’s New York art scene from the streets as a graffiti artist. Basquiat’s work has recently caught the attention of Reebok with several sneaker releases inspired by the artist.

This new Basquiat design features a white/black colorway adorned of course with the classic “Basquiat” look and mood. The tongue’s Pump features Basquiat’s crown emblem, while the heels feature another crown on the left shoe and a black pen-like scribbles dappled on the right shoe. We will keep you posted when the Reebok Pump Omni Lite “Basquiat” release next year.

The Green-coated Reebok Runner designed by artist Jean Michel Basquiat is a one of a kind masterpiece. Aside from the luxury classic leather upper, the sneaker contains multiple texts on the midsole and insole. Basquiat also labeled the tongue with his name while Reebok branding is found on the heel and side panel which includes a miniature British flag. Did you ever wonder why it is called “Untitled”?
