New York seems like a dream to me now, and I am enjoying the rainy Paris weather. I can’t believe I haven’t shared with you an exhibitions I had seen while in NYC. The last few weeks I was in New York, I was franticly trying to see all the exhibitions I could before leaving. So today it’s Jean Michel Basquiat, that I love so so much!! Famous 1982 Acrylic and Xerox on canvas mounted on wood.
The exhibit was centred on his note books/sketch books and I just loved seeing how graphic and visual his writings were. He was such a poet, we assimilated everything around him and recreated in his own language, his own expressive way to communicate.
His images are so strong in their simplicity. He had such a natural fluidity that really comes across in his work. I loved his texts, they become part of the painting as they are so graphic, and that ultimately also became his stamp, to recognise his work.
