Basquiat & FBI

He was afraid of the FBI mentions P. Hoban in „Basquiat, A quick killing in art“. Never understood why, but now. Their cryptologists could recognise his steganographically encrypted communication system. With this he hid the Congo Atrocities, Alfred Nobel, Leonhard Euler, George Washington Carver, Jesus, Isis, Osiris, Joseph in Egyt and so on.

Primitivism? Camouflage. Recognition protocols for his Steganography, one in his notebook, one in my diary (1979) in which he wrote his drummer’s address so we could stay in touch, as he didn’t have his own back then.

EDUCATION Nil? Nil is German or French for Nile. Compare the i with the other I`s. The lowercase but capitalized i shows me his tiny hint was intentional. „I’m not making paintings,“ he said, „I’m making tablets.“ Loraine O’Grady on Basquiat, artforum 1993. On tablets artists worked in ancient Egypt and Nubia. Owned to them was the straight-view-imaginary, the aspective. The one he used, as well as communicating spelling errors, like in my diary. America with a K is German: AMERIKA, AMERVKA? Compare the I. MICHEAL? A spelling error transforms into a recognition protcoll. The red circle communicates, like the double zero. Red for ashe, Gods power for action, the circle for the magic protection ritual. The two overlapping zeros, a geneological symbol. What does a cryptologist want?

To forge Basquiat, the forger must know his encrypted communication system. The one whose canvases were confiscated by the FBI had no idea.
