PYT has created a sandwich after the artist: the Basquiat Prime Beef Burger. In collaboration with New York's Japan Premium Beef Inc, whose building is the same one Basquiat once lived in, PYT have created the $64 burger. So if you can't afford a Basquait for your wall, at least you can grab one on a plate, if you have $64 to spend on a burger...

PYT is located at 334 Bowery, New York, NY 10012, United States
