Basquiat Buddies #3- Andy Warhol
Today's Basquiat Buddy is probably Jean Michel Basquiat's most famous friend; Andy Warhol. Warhol's studio, The Factory, was a popular meeting place for the artists. writers, singers, etc. in NYC and quite possibly the place where Basquiat met all of the 'buddies' featured in this series. Basquiat and Warhol had an extremely close friendship,devastated after Andy's death in 1987, Jean Michel died the next year. As I have said before, it's about the work not the words...for a complete bio of the 'King of Pop Art' visit the Warhol Foundation website. Warhol has tons of work but today I will just focus on works from the Basquiat and Warhol collabo show! I just love duets ;)
