Catalogue Note

“He ate up every image, every word, every bit of data that appeared in front of him, and he processed it all into a bebop Cubist Pop Art cartoon gospel that synthesized the whole overload we lived under into something that made astonishing new sense.”

Glenn O’Brien, “Greatest Hits” in Exh. Cat., Toronto, Art Gallery of Ontario, Jean-Michel Basquiat: Now’s the Time, 2015, p. 177
