Banksy and Basquiat

The word “No Graffiti ” is seductive and provocative. A taboo enriches desire and builds us up. Underneath hidden secret desires, hidden behind the prying eyes of other people, the passage of secret communication is in graffiti. Graffiti, such as an abrupt or desperate emergency exit, usually appears unexpectedly unexpected and surprises us and ventilates emotion. There are Examples of these scrambles have been raised to productive ones.
One is American genius ‘Graffiti artist, Jean-Michel Basquiat’ who died of drug addiction at 28 years old and the other one is British graffiti artist ‘Banksy’ left behind, remains unknown, even though he left numerous works with numerous works of art.

Basquiat’s work seems to be at the heart of a kindergarten eye, disregarding the basics of modern art called drawing. Like the filthy scribbles on the walls of the city, having feel the energy of free souls. His crude but primitive life has become a core cultural code of the times. In the painting of Basquiat, one can find the substance of the social dominance and conflict of society.
Also, the picture of Banksy does not have a profound philosophy. There is no need to study special lessons to understand, nor do you need to hear from an expert. As soon as you see it, you get a quick message from the picture. For a moment, there is a sense of humor that makes you laugh, and his paintings are usually challenging to challenge the authority of the world.

Although it may seem like a similar author, I think the lives of two writers are slightly different.

Basquiat became commercially successful in his later years, and the quality of her works improved. However, one foot of his foot did not emerge from the deep mire of heroism and commercialism. Little did the hard life of the ordinary black man emerge from the work. He thought of the identity of the black man, but he was a painter who painted with ‘ Armani ‘ suits thanks to the help of commercial art. His mastery of the maturity of his artistic genius and the opposite direction of life reflect the meaning of life itself.

On the other hand, the attitude for art of Banksy can be found in his interview

[I ask him if you need to be nimble to be a good graffiti artist. “Yeah, it’s all part of the job description. Any idiot can get caught. The art to it is not getting picked up for it, and that’s the biggest buzz at the end of the day because you could stick all my shit in Tate Modern and have an opening with Tony Blair and Kate Moss on roller blades handing out vol-au-vents and it wouldn’t be as exciting as it is when you go out and you paint something big where you shouldn’t do. The feeling you get when you sit home on the sofa at the end of that, having a fag and thinking there’s no way they’re going to rumble me, it’s amazing… better than sex, better than drugs, the buzz.”] <The Guardia,2003 >

The image of the above look like Banksy and Basquiat’s graffiti , in the Barbican Centre has given the impression that the other two writers ‘ attitudes are similar but what is right and wrong.
