Basquiat: By Himself
From his beginnings as part of a graffiti duo writing enigmatic epigrams on Manhattan’s Lower East Side to his neo-expressionist paintings exhibited in galleries and museums across the globe, Jean-Michel Basquiat’s works focused on identity, discrimination, and prejudice to capitalism, the market, and oppression. This book examines over 50 of his expressive self-portraits and the central position they hold within his oeuvre.
