Art may be in the eye of the beholder, but wait until you get ahold of this.
Mattel celebrates street art’s rise to fame with its Barbie x Jean Mechel Basquiat-inspired Gold Label doll. The collectible’s outfit is adorned with some of his most iconic work, which paved the way for the popularity of street art.
Basquiat’s neo-expressionist paintings featured a scribbling-style that can be seen all over Barbie’s colorful outfit. On top of the doll’s head, a golden crown pays homage to the artist’s early drawings, which represented ambition. The crown looks like it has been taken straight from his art thanks to an outline that appears hand-drawn.
Fans of this high-fashion Barbie can preorder it on Mattel’s website for $49.99. Each doll comes with a certificate of authenticity and a stand — there’s no way this piece of art can go without being displayed.
