Yutaka Sakano: In the workshop, Basquiat finds a box of white paint used to paint the cyclorama. He dipped a brush and held it in front of his face, while splashing paint everywhere. This surprised everyone attending the scene. Whenever he repeated the movement, his leather jacket got a little more paint. After a while, Midori screamed her indignation, because with the exception of the jeans and moccasins he came with, all the clothes for the shoot were graciously loaned by Issey Miyake. His jeans and moccasins are already splashed with paint, with colors found in his paintings. He seemed to have jumped directly from his New York loft to the Tokyo studio.

I think I remember that Basquiat picked up objects he found in the studio and used them in a very personal and fascinating way for this shoot. At the time, 22 years old, Basquiat still had childish features and his smile reflected the mischievous look of youth. His art reflects the same pure and innocent spirit.
