The Artist Birthday Series

Andy Warhol

 

It was his friendship and collaboration with Jean-Michel Basquiat however, was particularly powerful and brought him the most attention. Basquiat was a fast-rising, new star the art scene and Warhol was beginning to be considered “passé” by many, but their joint front gave Basquiat the artistic validation he needed and Warhol’s image was in turn, infused with a youthful, rebellious essence. Their impressive, collaborative collection, created by painting over each other’s work, entitled “Warhol, Basquiat: Paintings,” is still touring the world today.
