i.am.beyond excited for this.
firstly there is such little out there about Jean-Michel Basquiat in comparison to other incredible artisits.
secondly a lot of what’s out is the SAMO (jeanmichel-heads get it. -apologies i had to)
anyway suffice to say i was unexpectedly at the right place (Pegasus books on shattuck) at the right time (art coffee table book sale time) and for the FIRST time found a Basquiat coffee table book that was reasonably, BEYOND reasonably, priced.
this man is my FAVORITE artist… it was Salvador Dali for a long time but Basquiat, who i refer to as my darling, came and gave Dali a run for his money…they still compete sometimes, the geniuses.
anyway PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE do yourselves a favor and watch The Radiant Childwhich is a doc i do take some issue with but still so much rare Basquiat footage you can’t help but fall in love and sorrow. much more on this soon to come.
