Andy Warhol and Jean-Michel Basquiat

An exhibition titled ‘Warhol/Basquiat’ creates a dialogue between the rich personalities of two of art’s most influential figures: Andy Warhol and Jean-Michel Basquiat.

The years of 1984 and 1985 saw the two influential artists meet, and form a creative relationship that saw them work on a series collaborations. The pair worked on mixed media pieces, which combined the screen-printing synonymous with Warhol’s work and the free-style of Basquiat’s. What resulted was a visual language constructed from the contributions of the two artist’s diverse styles.

The structured nature of Warhol’s iconic screen prints, including the Campbell’s Soup Can, Marilyn and Electric Chair, are in contrast to the spontaneity of Basquiat’s painting style.

‘Warhol/Basquiat’ features collaborative pieces from Warhol and Basquiat as well as a major retrospective of the individual works from each artist. It is on display at the Bank Austria Kunstforum, Vienna, Austria until Sunday 2 February 2014.
