Basquiat: Boom: for Real
Jean-Michel Basquiat’s groundbreaking career is featured in this book edited by Dieter Buchhart and Eleanor Nairne. They focus predominantly on his staggeringly wide breadth of influences, including graffiti, bebop jazz, and Hollywood cinema—with not only extensive discussion on his pseudonym SAMO©, but multiple essays from scholars, poets and curators on his relationship to these various influences. These are accompanied by rare archival material and extensive photography, showing now more than ever Basquiat’s stunning and powerful legacy.
