Jan-Michel Basquiat was considered a major force on the international art scene in the 1980s, originally heralded for his contributions to the "graffiti movement" in which he and his friend, Al Diaz, took it upon themselves to create audaciously signed paintings, poems, and symbolic art on building walls and subway trains in lower Manhattan.

Born to a Haitian father and a Puerto Rican mother in Brooklyn in 1960, Basquiat's paintings eventually made the transition from subway cars to galleries, participating in his first group show in 1980. His reputation was further cemented the following year when he was celebrated in an article in Artforum Magazine by renowned art critic Rene Ricard.

Later, he collaborated with Andy Warhol and eventually exhibited his work as part of the Biennial held at the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York in 1983 becoming, at age 23, the youngest artists to ever display his works there.

Tragically, Basquiat died in his New York apartment from a drug overdose in 1988 at the age of 27. Despite his premature death, he is considered in some circles to be one of the most important American artists of the 20th Century.

The Exhibition of paintings by Jean-Michel Basquiat will be on display at the Darga Gallery in Sanur from January 30 until February 24, 2005.

The Darga Gallery is located in the Kompleks Sanur Raya No. 20-21 on Jalan By Pass Ngurah Rai.
