Jean-Michel Basquiat 1960-1988 : the explosive force of the streets

Summary: From the streets of New York to the walls of its most prominent galleries, young graffiti artist Jean-Michel Basquiat (1960 1988) was catapulted to international fame in his early 20s and died of a drug-overdose at 27. The subject of a feature film by fellow artist Julian Schnabel, Basquiat is one of the most admired artists to emerge from the 1980s art boom. This book explores his short but prolific career.
