Basquiat : A Graphic Novel
'Inspired totally by Basquiat's own aesthetic, the graphic novel is depicted through the use of primary and secondary colors - a favorite of JMB's and his contemporaries at the time' - Afropunk
A graphic novel on the legendary painter Jean-Michel Basquiat
Cool, talented and transgressive, Jean-Michel Basquiat's life is just as fascinating as the work he produced. Delve into 1980s New York as this vivid graphic novel takes you on Basquiat's journey from street-art legend SAMO to international art-scene darling, up until his sudden death.
Told through cinematic scenes, this is Basquiat as seen through the eyes of those who knew him, including his father, Suzanne Mallouk, Larry Gagosian and, most importantly, the man himself. Basquiat is a moving depiction of a troubled artist's life for those interested in both the art and the man who made it.
