Artists that Define the ’80s

Jean Michel Basquiat and Andy Warhol were pioneers in the Pop Art and Neo-expressionism movements of the 80’s. Both Basquiat and Warhol single-handedly revolutionized the art world, and are in the constant thoughts of many who love the 80’s and art.

Jean Michel Basquiat was a Brooklyn born artist that began his career in art by spray painting graffiti around New York City streets. Basquiat’s art centered around power structures, racism, class struggles, and many other social and moral in-justices. His art revolutionized a movement in the 80’s that left a massive foot print on the 80s.

Even after Jean Michel Basquiat’s death in 1988, his art defined not only the decade of the 80’s, but continues to be a major influence in today’s world of painting and art.

Andy Warhol is no stranger to Jean Michel Basquiat. The two were such good friends that when Andy Warhol died, Basquiat went into a whirl of depression, and subsequently overdosed on heroin.

Warhol is another iconic figure who’s art defined the 80’s. Between his work of Marilyn Monroe and the infamous Campbell’s Soup work, Andy Warhol’s work and his memorable quotes that go with it like “In the future, everyone will be famous for 15 minutes,” or “I’m afraid that if you look at a thing long enough, it loses all of its meaning.”

It is because of both Jean Michel Basquiat and Andy Warhol that we remember not just the incredible work they did in the 80’s, but how their work continues to remind us of that great decade, and how it continues to inspire.
