About

Jean Michel Basquiat, New York, 1979 This work is taken from Nicholas Taylor’s famous portfolio documenting his friendship with Jean-Michel Basquiat - a friendship which began when both collaborated on the historic No Wave band “Gray” in the late 1970s before briefly living together. Selections from Taylor's portfolio were recently featured in Basquiat: Boom For Real at London's Barbican.

Seller is an authorized dealer rep of Taylor's. This work is shipped flat using protective materials About Nicholas Taylor Nicholas Taylor (American, b. 1953) is a renowned photographer and musician. Taylor moved to New York in 1977 to pursue a career as a photographer and it was through the vibrant New York art scene that he came to know the young artist, Jean-Michel Basquiat. It was, in fact, his intimate portfolio of photographs documenting his friendship with Basquiat that rocketed Taylor to fame. The two would collaborate in the No Wave band “Gray” before Taylor launched a successful career as a DJ famous for track-looping. His track “Suicide Mode” would later be used in the soundtrack for Julian Schnabel’s 1996 film “Basquiat." Whilst Basquiat often provided glimpses into his conflicted character through his own art, Taylor’s photograph offers an intimate, and perhaps more honest, portrait from the outside. The clever exploration of light and dark reveals the dichotomies that divided the artist; both his fragile and playful, tender and brazen sides are unveiled. A soft glow is cast across Basquiat’s face, communicating a tenderness and affection that only a close friend could capture.
