"Born in Brooklyn in 1960, Jean-Michel Basquiat lived to the age of only twenty-seven. His meteoric career as an artist had lasted no more than eight years. The one-time teenage runaway and high-school dropout was first included in a group exhibition in 1980, and almost immediately knew considerable success, enjoying his first solo exhibition just two years later. Basquiat quickly became a notable figure on the international art scene, mixing with dealers and artists. Among these was Andy Warhol, with whom he established a close working relationship." "Borrowing from graffiti and street imagery, cartoons, mythology and religious symbolism, Basquiat's drawings and paintings explore issues of race and identity, providing social commentary that is both shrewdly observed and biting. Characterized by their intensely personal nature and the raw, almost aggressive handling of paint, these works have an enduring power to move and to confound." "Viewing the heady world of the 1980s art scene from the beginning of a new century, we are able to look at Basquiat's achievements with increasing objectivity. Rather than explore his persona, this book aims to demonstrate the lasting quality of Basquiat's work itself, as well as its uniqueness within modern art. It strives not only to reevaluate his principal works, but also to explain Basquiat's continuing interest as a major painter."--BOOK JACKET.

Jean-Michel Basquiat 1981 : the studio of the street ( Book )
6 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 233 libraries worldwide
"In 1981 Jean-Michel Basquiat made the momentous transition from the street to the studio. Jean-Michel Basquiat 1981: The Studio of the Street explores that critical year, functioning simultaneously as a coming-of-age story and an intimate oral history of the shifting cultural tide of New York's downtown scene. It is also a groundbreaking survey of rarely seen works that chart the artist's progression from spray-painted text to text-and-image; from materials found on the street to large, traditional painted canvases; and from pure drawing to his uniquely evocative hybrid of drawing and painting. Marrying an exuberant spontaneity and art brut style, with a firm command of not only art materials but also art history, Basquiat defined eighties Neo-Expressionism and left behind a body of work that resonates no less powerfully today."--BOOK JACKET.
Downtown 81 ( Visual )
14 editions published between 2000 and 2007 in English and held by 211 libraries worldwide
Fashion-photographer Bertoglio's portrait of the New York art scene circa 1981. The main focus is the provocative 19-year-old artist Jean-Michel Basquiat, already known for his excursions into street graffiti art and pioneering electro-beat. Shot as "New York Beat" in 1980-81 but completed for release nearly 20 years later when archival footage thought to have been lost was recovered. Many of the film's original sound elements were lost during the 20 years it spent in limbo, so much of the dialogue has been re-dubbed.
