Taschen Jean-Michel Basquiat (Hardcover)
Since Tachen's founding in Germany in 1980, the goal has always been to make the greatest books in the world. Whether through their incredibly popular and affordable "Basic Art" series or their "SUMO" collection that can retail for up to ten grand, their pursuit of greatness has made them a staple on the coffee tables and bookshelves of discerning aesthetes and art enthusiasts worldwide.
From the streets of New York to the walls of its most prominent galleries, follow the short, prolific, and politicized career of Jean-Michel-Basquiat, a cult figure of artistic social commentary. This introduction explores how the young trailblazer drew from inspirations as varied as Greek, Roman, and African art, along with French poetry and jazz, to create visceral images mixing word with bold color.
