“I was trying to communicate an idea, I was trying to paint a very urban landscape and I was trying to make paintings for………I don’t know. I was trying to make paintings different from paintings that I saw a lot of at the time. Which were mostly minimal and they were highbrow and alienating, and I wanted to make very direct paintings that most people would feel the emotion behind when they saw them”.

Jean-Michel Basquiat 1987
