Inviting interviews and scholarship on Black Mountain College trained artist Basil King

At age 83, King continues to work in Brooklyn, NY. He was born in the UK in 1935, immigrated to the USA at age 12, and began his studies at Black Mountain College in 1951. His early work in abstract expressionism grew into a new approach employing fluid forms and combining abstraction, surrealism, and figuration. Basil was immensely influenced by relationships in the 1950’s-60’s with Willem deKooning, Joan Mitchell, Grace Hartigan, Michael Goldberg, Paul Blackburn, Jack Spicer, and other painters and poets in New York and San Francisco. Basil was a frequent visitor to Franz Kline’s and Philip Guston’s studios and worked as a studio assistant for Adolph Gottlieb, Barnett Newman, and Mark Rothko.
