Jean-Michel Basquiat is one of the most influential artists of all time. Born in 1960 to Haitian and Puerto Rican parents, Jean-Michel Basquiat found his unique voice in graffiti art in the late 1970s and achieved artistic fame during the 1980s as part of the neo-expressionist movement. He famously collaborated with Andy Warhol during this period. Jean-Michel Basquiat died in 1988 at the age of 27, leaving behind a body of work that continues to inspire and challenge audiences today.
Jean-Michel Basquiat: King Pleasure features over 200 rare and previously unseen artworks, as well as artifacts and ephemera from the artist’s personal life, including childhood cartoons and illustrations from his teenage years.
