This book gives a new analysis of the intersections between graffiti art and the work of Basquiat. Not only are there few existent writings on the subject, but the book will also appeal to a very large public. This original analysis aims for the first time to combine Jean-Michel Basquiat's art and the art of graffiti. The author analyses the similar backgrounds of the graffiti artists and Basquiat, while also drawing the distinctions which propelled Basquiat to international renown, while most of the graffiti artists remained anonymous.

Artist: Jean-Michel Basquiat
