More information

Basquiat’s work was anchored in graffiti culture with its tags and street language, but he also referred to modern art, famous African Americans and his own background, often with a healthy dollop of social criticism. From 1980 Basquiat was a rising star in New York. In 1982 Delta was the first gallery to show his work in the Netherlands. Sonnenberg sees Basquiat as ‘a historical continuation in the line of Jean Dubuffet, Cobra and Willem de Kooning’.
