i remember when i was a child my father use to show me his work and i did not understand it..and then one day it clicked and i got it...i just hate it took so long..he kickstarted me to begin to paint which my father had been trying to get me to do...i just hate that he destroyed his self like he did...he could have did so much more and maybe even opend doors for some other artists of color...u can definately get lost in his work..thas how u know your looking at a good painting when you get lost in it...oh and if anybody is interested check out my work i created on the 'CREATE A PAINTING 'PART..
I BELIEVE BASQUIAT IS A MODERN SAINT , THERE ARE PEOPLE THAT LIVE IN OUR TIME THAT ARE MORE SPIRIT THAN HUMAN AND POSSES CERTAIN QUALITIES THAT ELEVATE COMMUNICATE AND INSPIRE OTHERS THEY ARE SELFLESS AND ARE AVITARS IF YOU WILL TO GREATER ENDS BASQUIAT WAS SUCH AN ENTITY AND HIS VEHICLE WAS ART SOMETIMES AS IN BASQUIATS CASE THEIR LIFE WAS FULL OF SUFFERING YET THEY RENDERED THIS BEAUTY AND WISDOM FROM THEIR PAIN ! I WAS FORTUNATE TO KNOW BASQUIAT AND WARHOL AND HARING MY ART CARRIES ON THEIR TRADITION IF YOU WOULD LIKE SOME OF MY ART WRITE ME AT , MANNY P.O.BOX 7602 , NORTH BERGEN , NJ . 07047 . THANKS !
Hello I personally cant figure out what he is painting, but it
is pretty good. I was looking at his pictures and they were
great!!! I am only 11 years old and i love art. M y mother
loves basquiat. Bye!
I LOVE Basquiats Work... His enjoyment, disappointments, love and reflections on canvas and found objects. He has brought light to to those that are born to CREATE.
Basquiat came into the world to change how man sees art... art became the "Haves and the Have Nots".....Basquiat transformed that view.
Thank You "Warhol" for recognizing art for what it is.....a piece of a human shown through WHATEVER !!! Stuff with MEANING!
Things with Soul.... Visions without boundaries! Seeing Basquiat's Soul.
Thank You "Haring" for recognizing art for what it is...Color, shapes, structure with cartoonish views.... Visions without boundaries! Seeing Basquiat's Soul.
Because of ARTIST like the fore-mentioned We all have a chance to see Basquiats SOUL.
I have done over 400 Graphic pieces on the site here...some negative...alot of them Positive, but they all had that days SOUL.....Good or bad!
It was my way of saying THANK YOU to one of the GREATEST artist ever Shown "Jean Michel Basquiat".....King with a Crown!
Thank You JP Morgan Chase.....I loved the Summer of Basquiat!
I visited the MOCA 5 Times!
I think that it is a really good picture i wish you could tell me how you made it so i can try.
Me encanta la expresividad y enorme fuerza de su obra, que a pesar de tener mucho de callejera, no me parece chabacana. Es fuerte. Me estremece.
Basquiat. What is not to say about such a magnificent artist. He has inspired so many people including myself, to discover themselves and touch boundaries outside their assessment. His god-given talent was short lived, yet his audience were and are, not even born yet. Like Picasso, he will conquer the art world one day soon, very soon.
basquiat has so much faith in his art. so much symbolism. It makes it impossible to ever know everything about his artwork, and exactly what he was thinking at the time. which makes it all the more magical. its astonishing that a person can have that much faith in a heritage that has been so troubled in the past, and that he can know so much about it. It makes me wish I had a faith like that.
I think that Basquiat is a wonderful artist. However, I think most seem to over analyze his work. When you create art do you think "O' and this here symbolizes..." I think not. Does anyone agree that his work is over analyzed?
I think that the norwegian artist Bjarne Melgaard stole many of his ideas from of Basquiat.
