ABOUT THE ART
Based on a still image from a video by Tamara Davis.
Studio Number One designed the opening titles for Jean-Michel Basquiat: The Radiant Child, inspired by bebop jazz album covers and the works of the legendary Saul Bass. Designer Kristian Henson explains: "We felt like Basquiat, in his own way, was a jazz musician: the frenetic energy in his pieces, his improvisation. His work shares his soul, very much the same way Charlie Parker or Dizzy Gillespie worked."
