ExPo NeWs : BASQUIAT
Is my mind all sane tonight ?
It's OK it's BASQUIAT.
The "so early - talented BASQUIAT popped up into this world just 2 days before Xmas 1960 from a Haitian father and Porto Rican mum; at 14 he went back to Porto Rico.
"Same Old Shit" became his signature ( that's inventive; I hardly see my boss finding it amusing my replying to my clients with a loud and clear Same Old Shit; I guess I'll leave it to that genius of Basquiat)
Just a kid on the block. But died of accidental overdose at 27.
Hung around with Andy ( Warhol), Keith (Haring), Klaus (Nomi), David (Bowie) at the Mudd Club. Same old shit, right again ?
A figure of the emerging counter culture of New York, I invite you to discover so much more at Le Musee d'Art Moderne.
