Artwork from the legendary street artist Jean-Michel Basquiat is now on display at the Guggenheim Bilbao. Titled, ‘Now’s The Time,’ this unique retrospective explores Basquiat’s work and provocative style that made him a prominent figure in the New York art scene throughout the 1980s. His vast array of eclectic artwork was heavily influenced by pop-culture, and focused on ‘suggestive dichotomies’ such as wealth versus poverty, integration versus segregation, and inner versus outer experience. Recognized as the definitive New York artist, the retrospective is comprised of 100 drawings and paintings that showcase the impact that Basquiat had within his short lifetime. Jean-Michel Basquiat: Now’s the Time runs from July 3rd – November 1st at the Guggenheim Bilbao.
