Product Description

The Story of Young Artist: Jean-Michel Basquiat
By Javaka Steptoe
Jean-Michel Basquiat and his unique, collage-style paintings rocketed to fame in the 1980s as a cultural phenomenon unlike anything the art world had ever seen. Before that though, he was a little boy who saw art everywhere: in poetry books and museums, in games and in the words that we speak, and in the pulsing energy of New York City.

Now, award-winning illustrator Javaka Steptoe's vivid text and bold artwork echoing Basquiat's own, introduce young readers to the powerful message that art doesn't always have to be neat or clean, and definitely not inside the lines, to be beautiful.
