Each artist has hand-drawn on or signed parts of the jacket. Basquiat draws a crown and "s" in gold and signs Jean Michel with a crown above and further "s" in silver; Futura 2000 signs in pink along the bottom edge at the rear and draws his spraycan character to the front; Shadi (David Scilken), artist and vocalist with The Young And The Useless, contributes a large drawing to the rear titled "Death Rain" signed and dated 1984; Haring contributes a neon green Three Eyed Smiling Face sticker; Revolt draws a large character to the left shoulder and sleeve; Cey Adams draws a spraycan and signs in various places.

Provenance: Joy "Joystick" Bouldin. Joy was a key figure in the New York club scene of the early 1980s. Aged 18, she arrived in New York and, eschewing her plans to go to college, found work at the Mudd Club. Here she was befriended by Andy Warhol, who introduced her to his inner circle, including Jean-Michel Basquiat (for whom she modelled) and Keith Haring. In 1982 she quit her job in a law firm to "work the elevator" at Danceteria. Deciding who to let in to the private club gave her a key position at the forefront of the emerging culture of the time, positioned at the intersection between fashion, Pop Art, Hip Hop and graffiti. Like key door-people everywhere, Joy knew everyone and everyone knew her. She came up with the idea of having the best known and most applauded graffiti writers, pop artists and musicians tag or draw on her clothing as they came in and out of the club. In doing so she created a wearable original artwork merging fashion, art and music that now also serves as a significant historical document. Joy Bouldin sat for Jean-Michel Basquiat several times and was the subject of two of his major works, RED JOY (sold £1.5m Sothebys London 2013) and BIG JOY (sold £2.6m Phillips London 2012), paintings which hung in the artist's first major solo exhibition at Mary Boone Gallery in 1984.
