The NY Times has just published an article about an exhibition of Jean-Michel Basquiat’s ‘unknown’ notebooks. I’ll be in Brooklyn in April and can’t wait to see these up close.
I admit I don’t know much about Basquiat. I was impressed by the 1996 movie while I was at university, but I have had little reason to find out more.
But all it takes is a quick Google to see there’s probably no other artist who so visibly fuses the concept of note-taking with stream-of-consciousness art. His artwork isn’t for everyone, but it is worth a good look, if only to get inspiration about notetaking itself, and the movement from “concept” to presentation.
