About Jean-Michel Basquiat

Like Andy Warhol and other Pop Artists, Jean-Michel Basquiat eloquently critiqued the elitist pedestal of art through his popular culture references and immediately recognizable imagery. Basquiat also presented challenges to the institution of Art, along with the graffiti artist Keith Haring, who both served as intermediary artists attempting to bridge the academically-trained artistic production with that of the intuitive and non-traditional graffiti art. Like Haring, Basquiat also used recognizable symbols and archetypal figures used in other works such as the crown on top of the dinosaur, which is often found on figures he revered or respected.
