With the snow falling outside and Basquiat's vibrant show 'Boom for Real' @barbicancentre, I'm in a NY state of mind.
Like no other artist, Basquiat captures the youth, the energy, the beat, the grit, the poetry, and the creative experimentation that was breaking out across the streets of NY.
I loved seeing this weekend so many students lingering, watching, listening, sketching... really looking at the free form of Basquiat's genius that has captured the imagination of the youth.
Having grown up in NY since the 80's, seeing this show with its incredible music and video footage, is like going home for Christmas.
