The power of the written and the spoken word. Not only a powerful image-maker, Jean-Michel Basquiat was a prolific and creative writer and speaker. This book, edited by Larry Warsh, showcases Basquiat’s words through his paintings, notebooks, and interviews, where he spoke about everything from culture and his artistic persona to race and urban life. At once profound and deeply moving, Basquiat’s words continue to resonate years after his untimely death in 1988.
