A guaranteed original one sheet movie poster from 1996 for Julian Schnabel's biographical Drama "Basquiat", based on the life of American post-modern artist Jean-Michel Basquiat.

The astonishing cast for this film includes Jeffrey Wright (as Basquiat), David Bowie (as Andy Warhol), Benicio del Toro, Dennis Hopper, Gary Oldman, Sam Rockwell, Willem Dafoe, Claire Forlani, Christopher Walken and Courtney Love. 

Oh, and the soundtrack is as good as the cast!

For those unfamiliar with Basquiat, the candle that burns twice as bright, burns half as long. From struggling artist living in a cardboard box in a park, to darling of New York and celebrity friendships such as Warhol and Madonna, to his untimely death at 27 from a heroine overdose. His complex work calls to mind tribal art and graffiti and was re-evaluated in a 2017 landmark exhibition at London's Barbican.

Even if you do not know his work, this is a critically acclaimed film and well worth seeking out.

This superb poster showing Wright as Basquiat is single-sided, has never been folded and is in fantastic condition, as you can see in our high resolution photographs.
