This XXL monograph offers an immersion in the daring art of Jean-Michel Basquiat, whose vibrant works retain all their freshness and urgency today. Perfect reproductions of his major paintings are presented alongside texts by editor Hans Werner Holzwarth and curator Eleanor Nairne. This publication immerses us in the world of an artist whose legend remains more powerful than ever.
Jean-Michel Basquiat, synonymous with 1980s New York, emerged as SAMO in the late 1970s, peppering the city with caustic comments and fragmented poems. Involved in an underground art scene including visual art, graffiti, hip-hop, post-punk and DIY cinema, Basquiat quickly conquered the established art scene by exhibiting around the world. His expressive style, based on raw figures and integrated words, is inspired by jazz, boxing, basketball and explores themes such as royalty, heroism and the streets.
Collaborator of Andy Warhol in 1983 and on the cover of the New York Times Magazine in 1985, Basquiat left an indelible mark on the history of art. This book offers an unprecedented perspective on his work, with perfect reproductions of his most significant paintings, drawings and sketches. Through a generous format, the reader dives into Basquiat's intricate marks and scribbled words, informed by commentary by editor Hans Werner Holzwarth and an essay by curator Eleanor Nairne. Illustrated chapters, year by year, trace the artist's life and provide personal and historical context through his own statements and contemporary criticism.
