Struggling artists need not apply.
The former Noho studio and digs where the late, great Jean-Michel Basquiat spent the last five years of his life is on the rental market — for a cool $60,000 a month.
Basquiat, who died in 1988, leased the funky space at 57 Great Jones Street from mentor Andy Warhol, who owned the building until 1990.
The second floor of the two-story, 6,600-square-foot space — which Basquiat used as a studio — has an “open ceiling with high ceilings and multiple skylights,” while the ground-floor dining room has a “massive” skylight, according to the Meridian Capital Group listing the rental.
The listing also highlights a “fully equipped restaurant space with venting and gas in place,” but notes that all uses of the premises will be considered.
“We’re mainly targeting artists, gallery users and food and beverage groups,” said Meridan Capital Group broker Garrett Kelly.
Basquiat rented the apartment/art studio from Warhol from 1983 to 1988.
In 2016, Village Preservation installed a plaque marking Basquiat’s time at the Great Jones Street location, which recently housed the reference-only upscale Japanese restaurant, Bohemian.
The plaque reads: “Basquiat’s paintings and other work challenged established notions of high and low art, race and class, while creating a visionary language that defied characterization.”
Anything associated with Basquiat means big money.
His paintings routinely sell for eight figures. In 2017, Basquiat’s 1982 depiction of a furious-looking skull, called “Untitled,” sold at Sotheby’s for $110 million after a bidding war between Japanese fashion magnate Yusaku Maezawa and a Las Vegas casino owner. It was the highest price ever paid at auction for a work by an American artist.
In May, two would-be art thieves tried to snatch a Basquiat painting from a Chelsea gallery.
The art star died of an accidental heroin overdose in 1988.
