Do you recognize those hairstyles?

We saw this large-scale poster on the Lower East Side of NYC recently, and it almost looks like it might be an ad for a band, since there are 4 silhouettes in the middle, all in somewhat of a rock band pose, flanked by 2 colorful head silhouettes with funky hair. Do you recognize these 2 heads? We knew them right away … Andy Warhol and Jean-Michel Basquiat! It doesn’t clarify the meaning of this poster for us, even though we know who the 2 outside heads belong to, but it was a bit of an art history puzzle to figure out.
