Basquiat—Exclusive Spreads from the New Taschen Monograph


March 2011, TASCHEN  released one the most highly-anticipated books of the year, a monograph simply titled, Basquiat…

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.

Check out the trailer of Radiant Child, the newest film on Basquiat.
