Screencap Request [Aug. 11th, 2011|10:59 pm]
Jean-Michel Basquiat Appreciation & Information

[music |a night at the hip-hopera]

 Hello, I have a request for anyone who has a DVD of the film Basquiat and doesn't mind doing me a wee favour.

I'm looking for a couple of screencaps of the shot of the man surfing in the sky over New York which appears a few minutes into the film. If anyone wouldn't mind screencapping it for me I'd be ever so grateful!

If you would like to help, please comment and I will leave my email address to send the screencap to. 
Thanks and have a lovely day!

Jean-Michael Basquiat: The Radiant Child [Sep. 18th, 2010|01:12 am]
Jean-Michel Basquiat Appreciation & Information


Went to see this documentary of Jean-Michel tonight. Awesomeness!!

My review - It was intriguing to hear stories of this artist from his close friends ... little things like the music he listened to while he paint, convincing his girlfriend to work and support him until he was famous, hiding his money throughout the house because he didn't use banks, etc. Lots of art never seen before!!!

I enjoyed.

It is noted, Jean-Michel made over 1,000 piece of art and 1,000 drawings in his career.

Pre-order DVDCollapse )

Metallica drummer to sell Basquiat painting in NYC [Oct. 10th, 2008|03:37 pm]

Metallica drummer to sell Basquiat painting in NYC

Lars Ulrich, songwriter and drummer for the heavy-metal band Metallica, is selling a Jean-Michel Basquiat painting from his art collection that could set a new auction record for the artist, Christie's said Friday.

"Untitled (Boxer)" was painted in 1982 by Basquiat, a graffiti artist who died of a drug overdose in 1988 when he was 27. It depicts a black heavyweight fighter with his arms thrust in the air against a graffiti-filled background.

Christie's will offer the work on Nov. 12 as part of its Post War and Contemporary Art sale. Its pre-sale estimate is more than $12 million.

The current auction record for a Basquiat is $14.6 million for "Untitled," which depicts a primitive figure with large hands. It sold at Sotheby's last year.

"Untitled (Boxer)" was the highlight of a 2005 Basquiat retrospective that was shown at the Brooklyn Museum of Art, the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles and the Museum of Fine Arts in Houston.

Ulrich, who collects contemporary art, 20th-century design and tribal art, has owned the painting for 10 years.

"As a collector I view myself as a caretaker of works of art, rather than simply an owner," Ulrich said in a statement issued by Christie's. "I have been fortunate enough to have shared 10 great years with this truly iconic painting by Basquiat, and it is time to put it back into circulation, and let someone else enjoy it as much as I have over the last decade."

In 2002, Ulrich sold another Basquiat work at Christie's, "Profit I," which fetched $5.5 million and was a record until "Untitled" sold in 2007.

Metallica's current album is "Death Magnetic."

I'm new. Not a lot of posts on this community, despite the popularity lol.
Most of you probably already have this, but I think it's got a catchy intro song:

What is your first encounter/experience with Basquiat's work?
What do you love about his work, and draws you to it?

I love hearing other people's different, individual perspectives on things.
