For those interested in the life and art of Jean-Michel Basquiat, the newly published hardcover book Basquiat: Boom for Real reveals an in-depth look at many previously unseen works. Beginning with his collaboration with Al Diaz and the creation of his graffiti/art project on the walls of New York city; to his acting role in the independent film New York Beat; his inclusion in New York/New Wave at P.S.1 and moving to his collaborations with Andy Warhol and beyond. This book is richly illustrated with many images of Basquiat’s paintings, assemblages and collages. Also are many photos documenting his SAMO graffiti tags, and Basquiat on the streets of New York.
