A Wishful Version of A Manhattan-Rimbaud


“In retrospect, Jean-Michel Basquiat turned into a wishful version of a Manhattan-Rimbaud or Brooklyn-Baudelaire, a genius with torn out dictionary pages, lots of empty lots between misspelled words and a suspected destiny – vague and unfilled. An art world’s child soldier.”

Roland Hagenberg
