One of the popular artists of the 1980's who rose to prominence and was considered the star of the group that included Julian Schnabel, Keith Haring, Robert Longo, and Mark Kostabi (among others). Basquait died at age 28 of a drug overdose.

Schnabel has been making headlines lately with his building in NYC.

I love this dude. The movie about him was pretty good too.

Am enjoying all the art!

Calgon brought me to your site. Your April 13th, 2005 blog title "Calgon Take Me Away" was at the top of my Google hits list; my latest screenplay's working logline is, "If only Calgon could take THEM away." Was surfing to see if Calgon still did that sort of thing....

Will send my mother here for the equine art, my husband here for one of his favorite paintings, and my artist friends here for the sure joy of your site.

Cheers!
