Jean-Michel Basquiat produced a wealth of street art as well as pieces on paper and canvas during his active years. These have become highly sought after, with collectors, art enthusiasts, auction houses and pawn shops alike having a deep appreciation for Basquiat’s African inspired style. Between the years of 2003 and 2017, the value of 171 pieces of Jean Michel Basquiat’s work increased, with some fetching returns of up to 96.5%, making his art and paintings even desirable at pawn shops.

Indeed, Basquiat’s work has been known to reach record-breaking prices. His painting ‘Untitled’ sold at Sotheby’s for an incredible $110,487,500 in 2017, which was the most an American artist had ever reached during an auction.

Here at New Bond Street Pawnbrokers, we offer loans on Jean Michel Basquiat art & paintings after a fair, accurate, auction based valuation of your pieces. For a no-obligation appraisal, please contact a member of staff today.


There are several factors that can make a big difference to the value of the loan received at pawn shops for any of your Basquiat art pieces. When our fine art pawnbroking team appraises Jean Michel Basquiat paintings, some of the areas we will be examining include:


If you have proof that your Basquiat art piece, drawing or painting is authentic, as well as necessary information about ownership and lineage, then you’ll have a much greater chance of receiving a higher loan amount at pawn shops. Finding these relevant documents, if you have them, is essential prior to any appraisal appointment. A fair borrowing value is still possible without information on provenance, but can be considerably more challenging to achieve if the authenticity of your Jean Michel Basquiat painting is in question.


A piece of Basquiat art in better condition will be offered a higher loan value than one that has been damaged by its environment. Any discolouration, scratches, or cracks could decrease the value of your piece at pawnshops. If your Basquiat painting isn’t being stored properly, then act as soon as you can to preserve the piece’s quality and maximize your loan potential. However, just because your art has some imperfections doesn’t mean we will not be lending against your Jean Michel Basquiat paintings. Let our experts determine your best options.

Size and quality

Although larger pieces don’t always fetch the highest prices when pawning it, there can be a correlation between value and size…with paintings and art by Jean Michel Basquiat this is certainly the case. Equally, the quality of a piece can affect its final price.

Artwork that required more effort to create and more complex techniques are often viewed in higher regard than quick sketches from notebooks. However, again, this is not always the case and loan values at pawnshops will also be dependent on the stories behind the different Basquiat pieces and their desirability amongst collectors.
