About the Author
Jean-Michel Basquiat is one of the best known artists of his generation and is widely considered one of the most important of the 20th century. His trendsetting works combine archetypal symbols and writing with invented iconography in compositions that are edgy and raw with a strong sense of color and balance. Internationally popular and shown in museums worldwide, his work appeals to both a sophisticated art scene crowd as well as a younger pop culture driven audience. The Basquiat brand embodies the values and aspirations of young, international urban culture. Basquiat's unique life story is as multifaceted as his artworks which reference everything from jazz and hip hop to black history, art history and human anatomy. The brand is about telling stories through the lens of an artist who was both influenced by art and culture and who life and work has in turn exerted vast influence on the art, culture and fashion of today.
