“I mean, Basquiat was my boyfriend for a while, and I remember getting up in the middle of the night and he wouldn’t be in bed lying next to me; he’d be standing, painting, at four in the morning, this close to the canvas, in a trance. I was blown away by that, that he worked when he felt moved.” – Madonna, in Interview Magazine

Oh man, I thought I was the only one who realized this relationship. Thank you, Leroy’s Place!

warhol & basquiat


I am 110% about this exhibition poster of Andy Warhol and Jean-Michel Basquiat. I will admit, there’s a little too much Bruce Jenner being channeled in Warhol’s look, but whatever. I’m in it too much to say no.

Of their relationship, Warhol’s studio assistant Ronnie Cutrone said,

It was like some crazy-art world marriage and they were the odd couple. The relationship was symbiotic. Jean-Michel thought he needed Andy’s fame, and Andy thought he needed Jean-Michel’s new blood. Jean Michel gave Andy a rebellious image again.”

Preach! I often foster the symbiotic relationship of shoes and spending money at Nordstrom Rack all on my own.
