It’s been confirmed as genuine by posts on his account. He says “Major new Basquiat show opens at the Barbican – a place that is normally very keen to clean any graffiti from its walls.” The street is mobbed with people already and a security guard has found a new job.
The street is now mobbed with people trying to get a look at his latest creation and the crowds are spilling onto the street. You’ll find a security guard lurking nearby.
