In 1981 Basquiat was discovered while painting as the graffiti artist known as Samo and by 1983 he was already showing major large-scale paintings on the international gallery scene and had made the cover of TIME. In 1985 he began a series of remarkable collaborations with Andy Warhol, and by 1988 he had died. Despite his short life. Basquiat left behind an oeuvre that continues to receive critical and popular acclaim. With almost 200 images, including extensive reproductions of the artists best work, and a large selection of never-before-seen photographs, this much-needed monograph is rounded off with essays and remembrances of Basquiat by critics, colleagues and friends -- as well as an illustrated biography and a chronology.
