BOOMER MAGAZINE I SECOND EDITION I SELF FULFILLING PROPHECY

BoomerMagazine

On many occasions, artists have prophesied the path of their career, the course
of their life and many other things surrounding them including life and death. A very specific one is Jean Michel Basquiat, the artist that we have chosen for the cover of the second edition of our magazine.

From the kid living in a cardboard box on the streets of New York at 17, to a superstar millionaire artist at 21, to his tragic death at the age of 28 to a legend that inspires millions of artists, Jean Michel Basquiat has captured the imagination of the world.

The purpose of this publication is to see how contemporary artists present themselves
and their works to the viewers and to connect them with a wider audience.

Riddhi Sarker

My name is Riddhi Sarker. I’m a 17-year-old artist

from Hyderabad, India. I am a very loud, curious,

and bored person, if I’m being completely

honest, especially now during the pandemic.

This is one of the reasons why I love to experiment

with medium and style in my artwork. It allows

me to break any monotonous routines that I

end up creating for myself, and find inspiration

in the world around me. A few of my biggest

inspirations are the artists Christina Quarles,

Yayoi Kusama, and Jean Michel Basquiat. In my

artworks, I like to emphasize colour and explore

themes of childhood and nostalgia.
