Modern Basquiat?!

So I'm driving through Santa Monica in traffic yesterday and I see out of the corner of my eye, an never ending room full of crowns! So I instantly pull over to see what it is, naturally. This artwork is amazing I just can't handle the abstract-ness of it. 
So I meet the artist, his names Mark Andrew Allen.

His art reminds me so much of one of my favorite artists of the 60s, Andy Warhol's buddy  Jean Michel Basquiat.
Even the crown is like a modern version of Basquiat's signature symbol.
