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


Member Price

Radiant Child: The Story of Young Artist Jean-Michael Basquiat tells the story of the cultural phenomenon unlike anything the art world had ever seen. His unique, collage-style paintings rocketed him to fame in the 1980s, 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.

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.

Winner of the 2017 Randolph Caldecott Medal and the 2017 Coretta Scott King Illustrator Award. Commended by Americas Award for Children's and Young Adult LIterature.
