About Him

Overview... an artist and musician completely of his time. Basquiat took the art world by storm with a wholly original style that seemed to take equally from African art, Abstract Expressionism, and a complete inner world of signs and symbols. As the toast of the New York art world, by age 23 he was rubbing elbows with Andy Warhol and Julian Schnabel. But his meteoric rise to fame came with a price, and his penchant for hard living took him away far too soon.

Personality... hip, enigmatic, and utterly alive. Basquiat was a rebel and iconoclast from the beginning, infusing his primitive style with cryptic, resonant statements on racism, globalization and the art world itself. He was seemingly born to be a star and born to be an artist, and the difficulties of balancing these two fates were part of his tragic undoing.
