WHO DIS???

If you've been to UNDRCARD Boxing Studio you've seen our art wall, covered in boxing pop culture and boxing trailblazers and rebels (notably a handful of women but more on that another time). A prominent image of a young man wearing gloves takes up the most real estate and we've had a lot of guesses over the year as to who this is. So, who is this young man with The Weeknd-ish hair? Hint; 4 months ago his artwork sold for $110 million usd!

On we've had a lot of guesses This is Jean-Michel Basquiat. Basquiat came to fame as a 19 year old in New York City in 1980 and struck this pose with fellow famous artist Andy Warhol. In May of this year his painting sold, this late artist's painting sold for $110 millies [ !!! ] making it the most expensive art work ever sold by an American artist. He's created quite few art pieces centered around boxing too.

Learn more about Basquiat in this Hypebeast piece.
