Great Jean-Michel Book Dec 12, 2007
Good writing and certainly great photos accompany this fabulous book on Jean-Michel Basquiat - gave it to my son as well as a gift.
you should buy this book Oct 30, 2007
this book is brilliant.. just buy it, the image quality / size / amount of images/ presentation -- everything is perfect. Jean Michel Basquiats work is beyond incredible, and this book is MUCH better quality and more comprehensive (artwork wise) than some of the other (slighlty cheaper)ones. I actually havent read it yet, but im sure i wont be dissapointed when i do- plus its worth 5 stars for the images alone.... honestly, you will be stoked that you bought this!
A premature death Sep 10, 2007
Like many great artists, Basquiat died very soon. Living reality for an artist is a permanent anguish. This book shows a young giant that lost the battle against the drugs. It's a very nice book that shows instants of his creative process. The pictures are very clarifying about his works.
