New Basquiat Documentary!

Jean-Michel Basquiat's energetic, graffiti style art has had a definite influence in my work.  I'm excited to see a new documentary is out that contains information I'm unfamiliar with.  I'm looking forward to seeing this film!

See another clip and read the article here.

This is my tribute to Basquiat from my banner, "A Tribute to Artists"


  1. What attracts you to Basquiat's work?

  2. Visually, I'm drawn to both the graffiti elements of his work and his use of color. Emotionally, I think his primitive renderings touch my child-like spirit and vague memories of childhood feelings. There's just so much emotion and energy in his work.

  3. This is beautiful! I remember watching that movie on Basquiat's work, and liking it a lot. He did some pretty cool work. I think you've done a fine tribute to him here. :)

  4. HI! I am nearly a neighbor of yours, I live about 45 minutes away (to the east). I was blog hopping and found you as I was on another blog! I am a big JMB & Haring fan and have found Banksy to be a riot as his graffiti work has turned up on buildings around the world these last few years. Your art is great and I'll definitely be following your blog!
    Be well,
