In 1981 Jean-Michel Basquiat made the momentous transition from the street to the studio. This book explores that critical year, functioning simoultaneously as a compelling-of-age story and an intimate oral history of the shifting cultural tide ok New York’s downtown scene. It is also a groundbreaking survey of rarely seen works that chart the artist’s progression from spray-painted text to text-and-image; from materials found on the street to large, traditional painted canvases; and from pure drawing to his uniquely evocative hybrid of drawing and painting.
