"Don & Kim"

2018

About

Diaz's bold and symbolic approach to art has helped trailblaze the historically political medium of graffiti. Responding directly to the continuously escalating tensions between increasingly divisive contemporary leaders, Diaz's chosen distinction between Donald Trump and Kim Jong-Un is nothing short of one great implosion – literally, as he has separated them with only a rocket. Pointed fingers and nuclear catastrophe emblematize the menacing dangers of unbridled masculinity in this graphic canvas. Al Diaz (SAMO) is a New York legend. His work gravitates towards words and imagery, using collage, mixed media, 'wet paint' signs, paint, and various other mediums and glazes. His SAMO tag is famous throughout the city as it was once a collaboration between him and his friend from adolescence, Jean-Michel Basquiat. Own a piece of New York history.
