Julian Schnabel, Bono and Jean-Michel Basquiat at Feinin’s Premere

Bono get off from stealing my spotlight, You’ve got that Feed Your World going at the UN, go terrorize them

Julian Schnabel’ Saint Sebastian 1979 with parodies of Basquiat’s imagery. Bono to your left, Schnabel to your right. Do you realize that Bono’ foot is up against the painting?

If you have to compare Julian Schnabel’s art with Jean-Michel Basquiat, you be foolish to believe if Schnabel has any merit. Jean-Michel Basquiat before his death had established himself as one of Andy Warhol disciples. This may not had happen if Warhol did not see something. I saw it too, pure energy flowing without the process of thought. Jean-Michel Basquiat’s paintings are still alive.

In 1996 Schnabel wrote and directed the film called “Basquiat”, based on Jean-Michel Basquiat troubled life.  Schnabel’s  paintings are known for his inventive canvas which portraits are painted on the surface made up of broken ceramic plates.
