About Jean-Michel Basquiat
A naturally gifted child, Basquiat impressed those around him with his early attempts at creation and found that his art was encouraged universally. Like Andy Warhol and other Pop Artists, Basquiat eloquently critiqued the elitist pedestal of art through his popular culture references and immediately recognizable imagery. Basquiat also presented challenges to the institution of Art, along with the graffiti artist Keith Haring who both served as intermediary artists attempting to bridge the academically-trained artistic production with that of the intuitive and non-traditional graffiti art.
