Jean-Michel Basquiat | Xerox is the first concentrated examination of the extraordinary body of work that the artist created using Xerox copies as his principal medium and compositional focal point. These immersive, collaged Xerox paintings epitomize Basquiat’s extraordinary capacity for visual language.

Their raw, allover compositions incorporate recycled and transformed signs and markings from the artist’s everyday experiences—including motifs from his earlier artworks. The intricate web of content in this series presages the copy-paste sampling characteristic of the subsequent Internet and post-Internet generations, positioning Basquiat as a pioneer of the pre-digital age.

About the Author

Jean-Michel Basquiat (1960-1988, New York) was one of the twentieth century's most important artists. He emerged from Lower Manhattan` s post-punk underground scene and over the course of his brief career worked closely with artists such as Andy Warhol and Keith Haring. More than three thousand works of art comprise his extensive oeuvre.
