THE PRINT

Urgent and captivating, Versus Medici is a magnificent crystallization of the potent iconography that has come to define Jean-Michel Basquiat’s work. Produced in 1982 when Basquiat was only 22 years old, Versus Medici is undoubtedly one of his most striking and dramatic works of that period. With this artwork the young artist boldly crowned himself as both successor to and worthy adversary of the artistic legacy of the masters of the Italian Renaissance. Versus Medici is an exceptional example of Basquiat’s most celebrated motif: the lone, warrior-like figure. Born of his fascination with anatomy, Basquiat breaks down the dichotomy between the external and internal, revealing the cacophonous innermost aspects of life with breathtaking vitality. It is challenging, dissonant, and captivating, as explosive in its execution as it is erudite in its conception.

THE ARTIST

A renowned painter, draftsman, poet, musician, and graffiti artist, as well as an all-around arts icon, Jean-Michel Basquiat was at the forefront of New York’s downtown avant-garde in the late 1970s and 80s. Friend to many but known well by a very few, Basquiat’s influence on subsequent generations of artists has been immense. Basquiat’s work is known for its primitivist motives, combining anatomical diagrams, commercial art, Black pop cultural history and figures, charged phrases and words, and representations of the body in an emotional and psychologically explosive admixture. His employment of bright colors and his vibrant line drawings brought to vibrant life on canvas his experiences in the urban landscapes.
