Jean-Michel Basquiat

Basquiat's expressive style was based on raw figures and integrated words and phrases. When asked about his subject matter, he answered “royalty, heroism and the streets”; his work is inspired by a pantheon of luminaries from jazz, boxing, and basketball, with references to arcane history and the politics of street life. In 1983 he started collaborating with the most famous of art stars, Andy Warhol, and in 1985 was on the cover of The New York Times Magazine. This book allows an unprecedented insight into his art, with pristine reproduction of all his most seminal paintings, drawings, and notebook sketches. Quotes by the artist and a richly illustrated biography follow up on all the important personal and historical connections.
