More About Jean-Michel Basquiat

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! Basquiat is perhaps the most legendary American artist of the last twenty years. His iconoclastic work--colorful, frenetic, boldly expressive--represents a confluence of divergent styles, including street art, neo-expressionism, and neo-primitivism.

Jean-Michel Basquiat was born in 1960 and died in 1988.

Reviews - What do customers think about Jean-Michel Basquiat?

Collection of pieces with interviews and retrospective essays  Nov 14, 2005
This collection of works by Jean-Michel Basquiat was prepared for an exhibition of the painter's works at the Museo Revoltella in Trieste in 1999.

The paintings are presented in a nicely large size, better than the paperback Basquiat books that are easier to find, and the colours are vivid. In addition to the works, the book also contains a great deal of textual material, presented in English and Italian translation. Retrospective essays are provided by Keith Haring, Francisco Clemente, and Keith Haring, and Basquiat's major supporter Bruno Bischofberger contributes a fascinating reflection on the painter's collaborations with Clemente and Warhol. There are also four interviews that allow Basquiat to speak in his own words.

My only real complaints about the word are that the typesetting is poor, with the text difficult to read, and my own favourite work of Basquiat, "Pegasus" was not included. Still, if you are a fan of one of America's greatest painters, this collection is worth a look.
Pzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz...slang for "hey girl, how can I get wit chu? "
(Out fitted players on the cover)
Basquiat's pallette is overwelming. This book has many previously unpubllished works by the late artist. Most of the drawings are exceptional...The paintings on the other hand are mostly unresolved. It would have been nice if the images were in FOCUS! But the over all production is good. Leaves me wondering when the rest of his unpublished drawings will see light of day.
Some poor reproductions.  Dec 16, 2000
Some of the drawings are disappointingly un-sharp reproductions and/or are too small. Basquiat's drawings are extremely delicate and detailed and more beautiful than his paintings. They must be reproduced with high quality sharpness and at a proper size to be fully enjoyed and appreciated.
Royalty, Heroism, and the Streets  Sep 13, 1999
This book (the one with "PZ" on the cover, since this site has decided to not seperate certain reviews to certain books...) is another great treat for any basquiat fan. It has some very intelligent writings by Keith Haring, Francesco Clemente and others. Also, it contains some informative interviews with the late artist that contain some of his famous quotes. One thing that is most exciting about this book is that it shows almost all of the Basquiat/Warhol and Basquiat/Warhol/Clemente collaborations! Also, the photographs and art reproductions are amazingly done. If you love Basquiat, or even mildly admire him (or Haring, Clemente, or Warhol for that matter) you NEED this book. Matt

If there are any other Basquiat fans out there looking for someone to talk to about art like I am, then please e-mail me. absolutely awesome book!  Aug 31, 1999
What an incredible artist! Jean Michel Basquiat's talent, his use of tone, colour and composition were unparalleled in the modern art world. He was a true prodigy; a prophet of creativity; a tragic poet. This book is a must for anybody interested in neo-abstract expressionism.
