A Sign of Basquiat’s Influence
Neo-expressionist and primitivist art by Brooklyn-born Jean-Michel Basquiat blew up the art scene in New York City in the late 1970s and early 1980s. His work was influenced by graffiti. But he had an effect on more than just the surface. There were many things that Basquiat could do, and his creativity even showed up in music.
“Basquiat ate all kinds of culture,” says art expert Jordana Moore Saggese. “His work on ‘Beat Bop’ is a testament to his ability to work across mediums and his deep engagement with the culture of his time.”
Basquiat had a huge effect on both the visual art and music industries, and the release of the “Beat Bop” records is a tribute to his many talents.
The Link Between Art and Music
A big part of Basquiat’s life and work has always been the link between art and music. He painted a lot while listening to jazz and blues. He was in the noise rock band Gray. Basquiat didn’t just like music as a hobby; it was an important part of how he made art.
