    One thought on “Basquiat”

    1. meh. i should've known better with this one. while i thoroughly enjoyed reading a bit about this brilliant renegade's life story (i.e my **favorite** part had to be the fact that he was often asked to leave/would get into "trouble" with friends/acquaintances who would host him over the years, as they he would come home to discover their refrigerators, furniture, etc. transformed into artwork :) hilarious!! what do you expect when you invite a precocious and rebellious graffitist-turned-artist in [...]

    2. "Since I was seventeen, I thought I might be a star. I'd think about all my heroes, Charlie Parker, Jimi Hendrix I had romantic feeling of how many people had become famous." - Jean-Michel BasquiatEmmerling introduces us to Basquiat's life from his childhood to his rapid ascent and shift from a graffiti artist to a Neo-expressionist to his tragic death in under 7 chapters and 100 pages. It is not brief but it is not dense either. It has a decent amount of information on this brilliant, enigmatic [...]

    3. "Astonishing" is a word Emmerling uses in summing up Basquiat's work. It is absolutely true.In his short life, Basquiat was amazingly prolific. He carried within a wide knowledge of history and culture and his place in both. He confronted the problem of identity and race from many angles: he shouted and whispered and cried.Basquiat, an inventive and intellectually curious young man, was forced to educate himself because the schools he attended sporadically had no place for his energy and wide ra [...]

    4. A good selection of artworks and commentary about Basquiat's themes, all based on exhibit catalogues and reviews. This is not a biography. A good overview of his work; rather distanced from the events of his life.

    5. Bought the book for the art (surprise!) and while the author gives some good background information here and there, they certainlytalk too much

    6. fabulous introduction to an amazing artist -- and his hyper-speed rise and fall. the illustrations are good selections, but there were a couple missing that i would have loved to see included.

    7. I honestly recommend this book to artists, storytellers and psychologistsBasquiat left us too soon, but you will quickly see how powerful and immediate he felt his story to be

    8. In spite of many who claim that Jean-Michel Basquiat (1960-1988) was but a flash in the pan, a faddish personality whose work won't survive, today there are many different presentations of his art published. This TASCHEN overview by Leonhard Emmerling, however, might be the best introduction for those who have never come across this great figure. Basquiat's art speaks to this reviewer who encountered the painter only years after the time in which he lived and worked, and Emmerling's book explain [...]

    9. It was great getting to see so many of Basquiat's works in the collection and I enjoyed the author's analysis of the compositions. Having not been formally trained in any artistic discipline, I found it useful to have a guide for delving into such complex work. I'll always have my own attraction to Basquiat's works, but having some of the artist's intentions laid bare in the context of his great works has enhanced my appreciation. I have to give credit to this account for also veering somewhat f [...]

    10. I took this out of the library to read before the highly-anticipated Basquiat exhibit hits the AGO in Toronto. While I enjoyed the parts about Basquiat's history and personal life, the parts where the author explained in exhaustive detail the meaning, symbolism, and techniques behind each piece of Basquiat's work were rather dull.The chronology also jumped all over the place, so it was difficult to follow, but the timeline at the very end of the book was a nice addition. I also appreciated the h [...]

    11. La vita di Jean Michel Basquiat raccontata da Leonhard Emmerling prende si dipana e velocità vorticose come l'ascesa del giovane artista scomparso nell'88 per overdose da eroina.Conosciamo il talento di Basquiat, sentiamo la sua difficoltà ad accettare di essere una mascotte dell'industria e del mercato, conosciamo il suo amore per l'arte, per i graffiti, per la storia dell'america e l'impegno di Basquiat nella lotta alla discriminazione.Conosciamo relativamente poco di quello che ha pensato o [...]

    12. Altamente raccomandato a chi si interessa d'arte contemporanea ma, come il sottoscritto, è consapevole della propria ignoranza. Prima del libro, tutto quello che sapevo di Basquiat si riassumeva in "quell'artista di colore morto giovane, di cui non ho visto il film". Dopo il libro, rimane da chiedersi dove sarebbe arrivato nel 2009 e se la sua influenza si sarebbe estesa anziché rimanere un "sorprendente solitario".Man dies.

    13. Four stars for the book's incredible subject, but a three for the writing as it seems Emmerling either loathed or envied Basquiat enough to twist every achievement into an event brought on by a mixture of luck/apathy/anger.

    14. Basquiat es irregular. Algunas veces tiene destellos de grandeza, otras no; lo he visto hasta en playeras Pull & Bear. Todo es me confunde. En cuanto al libro: es Taschen.

    15. Fascinating look into the life of an artist who was swallowed by the excesses of the same 80’s NYC scene that made him rich and famous in just a matter of several years. While his painterly talent is apparently nonexistent, he does have skill in presenting a thought provoking narrative via the use of a patented symbology, which had become repetitive and passe by the time of his death.

    16. I admit, I found the info about the art scene at the time fantastic. I found the story of the man interesting, and of what was going on and the crazy yuppie culture that allowed art prices to skyrocket and so on--let's face it, the 80s were weird.The one thing I couldn't quite get--and I'm an art lay-person, I admit--is Basquiat's art itself. Some of it I found interesting, and the book's presentation's a good onebut much of the art I can tell I wouldn't be a fan of even if I got to see it in th [...]

    17. Il libro fornisce una meravigliosa analisi stilistica (ma allo stesso tempo amaramente critica) di Basquiat e del buisness dell'arte nell'epoca in cui Wharol regnava incontrastato.
