Basquiat & Warhol: An Unlikely Friendship In Art History

Basquiat and Warhol were two of the most important and influential artists of their time. They were also good friends.

As two artistic luminaries from different eras, two legendary creative minds of the era, and two excellent friends, Andy Warhol and Robert Indiana were an unlikely match. They would establish one of the most significant artist-artist relationships in history. The wildly experimental Basquiat and Warhol, the founding father of Pop art, emerged from different generations and backgrounds. However, in just six years and a profoundly intimate though tumultuous friendship, the mutual respect and adulation that Basquiat and Warhol had for one another inspired two separately iconic bodies of work that are now eternally emblazoned in the annals of art history.

Basquiat was a young, Neo-Expressionist artist who emerged from the graffiti scene in downtown Manhattan. Warhol, on the other hand, was an established Pop artist and the founder of the movement. When they first met in 1980, Basquiat was a 22-year-old unknown and Warhol was a 56-year-old art world heavyweight. But the two soon bonded over their shared love of making art and their similar senses of humor.

They would go on to collaborate on a number of projects, including paintings, drawings, and sculptures. Warhol helped Basquiat gain wider recognition in the art world, while Basquiat helped Warhol to connect with a younger generation of artists.

Their friendship was not without its ups and downs, however. Basquiat was known to be jealous of Warhol's success, and Warhol was often critical of Basquiat's work. But in the end, their mutual respect and admiration for one another's work was evident.

In 1986, just two years before Warhol's death, the two artists collaborated on a series of paintings that would come to be known as the "Paintings Based on Photographs of Debbie Harry." This series was a departure from Warhol's usual style, and it is widely considered to be one of his finest works. Basquiat and Warhol's friendship was an important and unique artistic collaboration that resulted in some of the most iconic art of the 20th century. Their story is a testament to the power of friendship, and it serves as a reminder that great things can come from unlikely places.

“Imagine Picasso” Debuts in San Francisco

Last year, immersive exhibits were all the rage, with Vincent Van Gogh and the Sistine Chapel among the most sought-after worldwide. That tendency does not appear to be slowing down anytime soon, as a new exhibition dedicated to Pablo Picasso has opened in San Francisco. "Imagine Picasso" is an interactive show that invites visitors to explore the artist's creative process.

The exhibit features a wide range of Picasso's work, from his early sketches to his famous Cubist pieces. It also includes some never-before-seen works, such as a sketch for the 1937 painting "Guernica." In addition to the art itself, the exhibit includes multimedia elements that provide context and insight into Picasso's life and work.

Visitors are encouraged to explore the exhibit at their own pace, and there are several interactive stations where they can try their hand at creating art themselves. "Imagine Picasso" is a fun and informative experience for art lovers of all ages.

"Imagine Picasso," created in collaboration with the Picasso Estate, features more than 200 works by the late Spanish artist in an immersive experience dubbed "the largest collection of Picasso's paintings in one collection ever." Pablo's grandson, Olivier Widmaier Picasso, added, "I think this exhibition would have delighted my grandfather a lot because he was, most of all, a man of individual liberty."

Pablos Picasso is the subject of the experiential exhibition "Imagine Picasso"

Picasso's iconic oil painting Guernica is undoubtedly the most resonant of the works on show. The painting, created in 1937 to represent the horrors of war, is widely regarded as possibly Picasso's most renowned piece, and it is recreated throughout the area, as well as the blood-red hue of the floor.The exhibition debuted in France and Canada before coming to the United States to open at San Francisco's Skylight at The Armory. If you're in the Bay Area, be sure to check out "Imagine Picasso" before it closes in mid-March.

This Farmhouse Compound in Upstate New York Features Eight Additional Structures

The most intriguing aspect about colors, according to Josef Albers in his 1963 book Interaction of Color, is seeing them change in place. “Colors appear in a never-ending state of change,” he continued. “They're always linked to shifting neighbors and conditions.” Bradford Shellhammer, vice president of buyer experience at eBay, will tell you that reflecting on this situation has the ability to impact those who pause long enough to witness it.

The farmhouse was built circa 1860 and is a combination of shingle and clapboard in style. It has a deep wraparound porch and paired windows on the second floor, which match the shutters on the first floor. Since the house is already in need of extensive repairs, buyers may wish to preserve or restore its original architecture.

The interior has been gutted, and the kitchen and bathrooms have been updated. The second-floor landing leads out to a balcony with views over the property, while three bedrooms and two full bathrooms are on the second floor.

The property has four wells, including an artesian well with potable water at a rate of 100 gallons per minute, as well as two cisterns that collect rainwater. A pair of flat-roofed stone structures at the edges of the property are storage sheds. They have electricity and open into the barn on the opposite side.

The main barn, built between 1815 and 1860, has a gable roof with deep overhangs supported by large timber brackets along its length. Eight-foot sliding doors face south to welcome in light during the day. Inside is evidence of recent use for residential purposes. The property also includes an additional eight outbuildings including a small barn with an exterior stone foundation, an old office building that is falling apart, several sheds in various states of collapse or repair, and three smaller buildings that were once used for chicken coops.The property is located in the scenic Catskills region about 60 miles northwest of New York City. It is currently offered at $1.75 million.

LEGO Releases a 2,585-Piece Globe Set That Actually Spins

LEGO is currently back with something new to quench your wanderlust after releasing an 11,695-piece world map through its ART series.

The LEGO GLOBE is a project created by Guillaume Roussel, a 23-year-old Frenchman who proposed it in early 2020 as part of the LEGO Ideas division. This 2585-piece kit includes a glow-in-the-dark globe made from customizable vintage bricks and embellished with words printed on them that light up when exposed to UV light. After the globe is built, it may be turned to spin correctly in order to show the Earth.

The globe was inspired by the tales of Jules Verne, according to Guillaume. Jules Verne was a 19th century French author who wrote pioneering science fiction novels, including "20 Thousand Leagues Under the Sea."

"I was always fascinated by Jules Verne's imagination," Guillaume said. "You can discover countries you've never heard of through his books because he did so much research on all the civilizations and cultures back then. His writings are like a treasure hunting map, where you can interact with the world and discover new places. I wanted to make something "Jules Verne-like" with LEGO bricks."

LEGO Ideas is where people submit ideas for LEGO sets they want to see created. This program gives fans the chance to help create what they think should be part of LEGO's next collection. It could be a product, an icon or even a whole scene from popular culture.

Anyone can submit their idea, but it must be something that can be replicated using LEGO bricks and has to show how the ideas would look on the box art if it were to become an official set.

Guillaume explained, inspired by Jules Verne's novels, "I asked myself, 'what could be creative, educational, and appeal to the greatest number of people on Earth?’ And the answer was simple: ‘the entire world.'”The LEGO Ideas 21332 The Globe set is now available for purchase from February 1, at a cost of $199.99 USD through LEGO.
