Ground up… 25 February 2010Posted by marisacat in Divertissements, Inconvenient Voice of the Voter.
Many outside of New York were first exposed to graffiti in 1979, when Lee Quinones and Fab 5 Freddy were featured in a gallery in Rome and when Jean-Michel Basquiat was featured in Blondie’s video “Rapture.” Basquiat later branched out from street graffiti, working on pieces like the one above.

NYDN of all places, has a nice gallery of street art in NY…. tho perhaps less surprising when one considers years into decades of commissioned work, as well as gallery commissions.
I had not meant to pick one by so well known an artist as Basquiat… but it appealed.
