Original litho-printed poster for the film release ‘Basquiat’.

An extremely rare original poster, the 60"x 40" format was used to promote the film in outdoor media including airport concourses, shopping malls and railway stations.

‘Basquiat’ is a American biographical drama film released in 1996 and directed by Julian Schnabel and written by Lech J. Majewski and John Bowe based on the life of American postmodernist/neo expressionist artist Jean-Michel Basquiat. Basquiat, born in Brooklyn, used his graffiti roots as a foundation to create collage-style paintings on canvas.

Jeffrey Wright plays Basquiat, and David Bowie portrays Basquiat's friend and mentor Andy Warhol. Additional cast include Gary Oldman as a thinly-disguised Schnabel, Michael Wincott as the poet and art critic Rene Ricard; Dennis Hopper as Bruno Bischofberger; Parker Posey as gallery owner Mary Boone; and Claire Forlani, Courtney Love, Tatum O'Neal, and Benicio del Toro in supporting roles.
