Although he passed in 1988, Jean-Michel Basquiat’s artistic prowess is still recognized today.The Brooklyn born artist was initially recognized for his graffiti that used the walls of Brooklyn and Manhattan as canvas. He eventually moved on to painting and began to create work that drew on pieces from contemporary culture.
Recently, director Tamra Davis payed homage to her friend in a documentary entitled “The Radiant Child” in which she utilized archival footage and interviews with Basquiat to give viewers a more intimate look at the artist.
Below is a trailer for the movie:
The fashion industry has also paid homage to the late artist with magazines such as Vogue Hommes International using his personal style and work as inspiration for editorials.
To mark Basquiat’s 50th birthday, the Beyeler Foundation in the Swiss city of Basel in collaboration with the Modern Art Museum of the City of Paris will open a retrospective of his work. The retrospective will be first displayed in Basel until September 5, 2010. Then it will be moved to Paris where it will be displayed there from October 15, 2010- January 30, 2011.

I know all my Southern Cali 80s babies have distinct memories of going to Disneyland entering Tomorrow Land and viewing Micheal Jackson and Francis Ford Coppola’s insane rendition of Star Wars. My pal Stella recently went to Disneyland and informed me that they brought it back!!!! No way Stella!! This alone may inspire a trip back to Cali. I’ve posted the YouTube version but it really must be seen in 3-D, and perhaps with the nostalgia of how amazing it was to you when you were 7. I showed it to a few of my born and bred East Coast pals and they thought I had lost my marbles.
Wow!!!! I’ve just finished watching one of the most beautiful films I’ve seen in a long time. Not sure how this one got past my radar it was released in 2006, but I’m glad I saw it. I’m always a sucker for a good tale.
