Jean-Michel Basquiat @ Gagosian Hong Kong Recap

Jean-Michel Basquiat Brooklyn-born artist remains one of the most original of his generation. Having died at the age of 27. Following an exhibition of his work in Chelsea earlier this year, Gagosian Gallery is playing host to a selection of Basquiat’s paintings for the first time in Hong Kong. Basquiat's work has earned praise and critical acclaim for its fusion of drawing, painting and poetry and its ability to balance aesthetics with acerbic commentary on the harsh realities of race, culture, and society. Here’s a look at the Jean-Michel Basquiat exhibition at Gagosian Hong Kong, which began on May 21 and run through August 10.
