Obnoxious Liberals, 1982 is a high quality fine art print of an original painting by American graffiti artist Jean-Michel Basquiat.
This is an interesting painting as it explores the trails Basquiat was experiencing after his meteoric rise to fame and the forces that ultimately lead to his death. The left half of that picture illustrates the penultimate moment in the story of Samson: A black man shorn of his dreadlocks pushes out with muscular, manacled arms against classical white columns to either side. In the centre the figure of an art critic a shouting man in a black top hat and priestly collar holding aloft a fist full of arrows. The figure on the right with a cowboy hat and pink body with dollar signs is the collector eager to buy the art.
