Jean-Michel Basquiat Xerox is the first concentrated examination of the extraordinary body of work that the artist created using Xerox copies as his principal medium and compositional focal point. These immersive, collaged Xerox paintings epitomize Basquiat´s extraordinary capacity for visual language. Their raw, allover compositions incorporate recycled and transformed signs and markings from the artist´s everyday experiences-including motifs from his earlier artworks. The intricate web of content in this series presages the copy-paste sampling characteristic of the subsequent Internet and post-Internet generations, positioning Basquiat as a pioneer of the pre-digital age.

Running the gamut in topic and style from faux-political to faux-´´New Yorker,´´ David Berman´s lo-fi cartoons incorporate strains of high and low comedy, wistful Americana, contemporary art, dream visions, and a visual analog to the semipenetrable personal allusions found in his music and poetry. His drawings invite the same deeper thought as his writings, making use of wordplay, cultural references, and offbeat observations. The sparse illustrations are complemented by poignant one-liners, and reveal moments of lightness within the author´s dark humor, providing a wry, erudite commentary on American culture.
