Jean-Michel Basquiat

Jean-Michel Basquiat emerged from the "Punk" scene in New York as a gritty, street-smart graffiti artist who successfully crossed over from his "downtown" origins to the international art gallery circuit. In a few fast-paced years, Basquiat swiftly rose to become one of the most celebrated, and possibly most commercially exploited American "naif" painters of the widely celebrated Neo-Expressionism art movement.


Basquiat's work is one of the few examples of how an early 1980s American Punk, or graffiti-based and counter-cultural practice could become a fully recognized, critically embraced and popularly celebrated artistic phenomenon, indeed not unlike the rise of American Hip Hop during the same era.

About Pyro (1984) JeanMichael Basquiat Neo Expressionist Painting
An explosion of wild colour, frenetic gesture and emblematic imagery erupts across the canvas of Jean-Michel Basquiat’s spectacular painting, Pyro. Executed in 1984, at the creative pinnacle of the artist’s meteoric career, the work is replete with the hallmark iconography and dazzling energy of Basquiat’s unique and coveted pictorial lexicon. In an electrifying scene of urban chaos, graffiti-like figures, silkscreened animals, architectural shrines, and curious scientific models converge and collide with dizzying force. At the centre of the composition, a monolithic figure – teeth bared and arms splayed wide – is juxtaposed against a flaming yellow backdrop.With a mask-like face and searing hollow eye sockets, the figure seems engaged in a scream of silent fury that rivals the animalistic cries invoked in Picasso’s seminal Guernica of 1937. As its title infers, Pyro is fuelled by the vigour and dynamism of a blazing fire: its vitality is infectious. The tumult of images, symbols and cyphers that cascade across the canvas speaks not only to the vivacious, exuberant, unstoppable spirit of downtown New York in the 1980s, but also to the artist’s own insatiable and indiscriminate appetite for knowledge.
