Art.com Launches Rare Collection Of Prints By Graffiti Artist Turned Art World Sensation Jean-Michel Basquiat

EMERYVILLE, Calif., Feb. 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Art.com, the world's favorite place to discover and buy art, today unveiled a new, fine art print collection of rarely seen images by Jean-Michel Basquiat. The late Basquiat was the first African-American artist to break the white male stronghold on Conceptual art in the 1980s with his controversial drawings and paintings, including "Untitled, 1984" and "Untitled, 1981." Now, Art.com is offering consumers the chance to own these graphic and charged images for the first time.

Although his career was brief—spanning just eight years—Basquiat quickly transformed from a teenage graffiti artist to one of the most influential artists of his generation, creating vibrant artwork through designs, symbols and texts that illuminated his perspective on class struggle, poverty and politics. He drew inspiration from cartoon drawings, world cultures and religious symbolism alike, and his contentious style earned praise from his famous peers including Andy Warhol, Madonna and visionary street artist Keith Haring.

"As part of our ongoing commitment to help art enthusiasts discover and experience art, Art.com has reached deep into the Basquiat Estate archives to handpick some of Jean-Michel Basquiat's most memorable images that have only been seen in museums and blue-chip galleries," said Ivy Ross, Chief Marketing Officer, Art.com Inc. "We are thrilled to offer this amazing collection of Basquiat's rarely seen images to our customers for the first time."

Art.com's complete Jean-Michel Basquiat collection has been carefully reproduced using the giclee printing process to maximize color accuracy and resolution. To explore the complete Jean-Michel Basquiat collection, please visit http://www.art.com/basquiat.
