Radiant Child

Radiant Child
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.
