    just to make clear, the above
    photo selections is a superbly
    inept overview of the volume of
    stuff he's done. find the book,
    you'll see.
     
  4. Brown, i'm on it...
    it always makes me wonder you know, sometimes you see a bunch of someones stuff and you're still not convinced or motivated, i hardly know what it is, and someother times you see a grayscaled text and a bike and you get the message...i'll look for it, the only thing to clarify is if he's as dope as he seems or you made a really appealing collection,lol
     
  5. ah! fuck it...BROWN gimme the text behind the bike!!!

    i don't know man, he's extra crispy dope to me....
    your tastes may be a bit more refined in certain
    areas.....................he's just a dope guy in general
    on top of being a dope artist..........
    the book is, i think, 65 color flicks, 65 b&w......
    lots of shit i've never seen that blew me away...
    i won't even get into details....
    they also had the best basquiat book i've ever
    seen there.....fuckin' huge ass book with a
    bagillion full page/full color paintings....both were
    expensive:(
     
  7. Brown you're my homeboy, but please dont say you like Basquiat....

    :lol: oh no! apparently i'm saying too much
    lately............................................
    uh.........hmm..........what to say................
    ...um....yeaaaaaaaano??

    really, lately i've been getting smacked around
    by basquiat. i couldn't tell you why other than
    the primitive shit is intriguing me lately. i don't like
    all his shit, not by a long shot, but some of it
    is..........i'm liking it. sorry:)
    please don't hate on me:) ;) :D

    aserine...it does look boring. i'm trying to tell
    you the book is full of wicked shit. but even
    then..its probly boring. he's one of these guys
    that you read about as well as look at his shit.
    he's an interesting guy(to me anyhow).


    yup.
     
  10. :heated: OK, i just might never talk to you again:lol::lol::lol:

    Seriously though,and just for the record, i aint got beef with his work, its ok but rather insignificant to me, its the whole story/background/hype that bothers mr the most.

    heh heh...
    i know where you're coming from on the
    basquiat story.

    its somewhat significant to me
    right now becuz i'm in the process of trying
    to unlearn/redirect my drawing style. so i've been
    looking at tons of african mask art, haida
    art, primitive stuff, how picasso appropriated
    the african stuff into his own whatever....you know,
    nicking bits of stuff from all over trying to work
    that into something my own.
    some stuff serves a purpose in hindsight.
