“The strength of Basquiat was in his ability to fuse images from the streets, newspapers, and TV with the spiritual heritage of his Haitian by injecting both in an intuitive understanding of the language of painting,” said Jeffrey Deitch, the new director of the Museum of Contemporary Art Los Angeles.
Basquiat’s art style was focused on themes such as wealth versus poverty, integration versus segregation, and inner versus outer experience. He was mostly known for his unique combinations of text and images. His pieces were strongly political and direct in their address of power structure and systems of racism.
