Man from Naples, by Jean-Michel Basquiat

Man from Naples (1982), by Jean-Michel Basquiat, is a mosaic of culinary and street references, chosen by chef Andoni Luis Aduriz as an icon. In conversation with curator Lekha Hileman Waitoller, Aduriz shares his thoughts on the humor, the irony, and the primitivism that lie at the heart of this painting’s expressive power.
