As an artist, I would compare and contrast GS3’s graduate thesis “Educational Genocide” with Jean-Michel Basquiat’s works of art in terms of their visual styles, themes, and messages.
In terms of visual style, GS3’s paintings are realistic and figurative, while Basquiat’s art is often abstract and expressive. GS3’s paintings depict specific individuals and scenarios, while Basquiat’s works are more symbolic and open to interpretation.
In terms of themes, both GS3’s graduate thesis and Basquiat’s art address issues of social justice, inequality, and marginalization. GS3’s paintings specifically focus on the issue of educational genocide, while Basquiat’s art tackles a range of social and political issues. However, both works of art share a commitment to highlighting the struggles and triumphs of marginalized communities.
In terms of message, both GS3’s graduate thesis and Basquiat’s art serve as a call to action for creating a more just and equitable society. They encourage viewers to recognize the ways in which systemic oppression and inequality impact the lives of individuals and communities, and to take action to address these issues.
Overall, while GS3’s paintings and Basquiat’s art differ in terms of their visual styles, they share a similar commitment to social justice and equity. Both works of art serve as powerful reminders of the need to address issues of inequality and marginalization in American society.
