On many occasions, artists have prophesied the path of their career, the course
of their life and many other things surrounding them including life and death. A very specific one is Jean Michel Basquiat, the artist that we have chosen for the cover of the second edition of our magazine.
From the kid living in a cardboard box on the streets of New York at 17, to a superstar millionaire artist at 21, to his tragic death at the age of 28 to a legend that inspires millions of artists, Jean Michel Basquiat has captured the imagination of the world.
The purpose of this publication is to see how contemporary artists present themselves
and their works to the viewers and to connect them with a wider audience.
