Radiant Child: The Story of Young Artist Jean-Michel Basquiat

(No reviews yet)

Winner of the Randolph Caldecott Medal and the Coretta Scott King Illustrator Award

Jean-Michel  Basquiat and his unique, collage-style paintings rocketed to fame in  the 1980s as a cultural phenomenon unlike anything the art world had  ever seen. But before that, he was a little boy who saw art everywhere:  in poetry books and museums, in games and in the words that we speak,  and in the pulsing energy of New York City. Now, award-winning  illustrator Javaka Steptoe's vivid text and bold artwork echoing  Basquiat's own introduce young readers to the powerful message that art  doesn't always have to be neat or clean--and definitely not inside the  lines--to be beautiful.
