Ouattara Watts is a beloved legend in the New York art world, close friend of Jean-Michel Basquiat, painting rival of Julian Schnabel, who once had important solo shows at Baghoomian and Gagosian galleries. Seldom in the competitive world of expressionist painting has one artist been so universally adored, as the presence of Glenn O’Brien, Francesco Clemente, Victor Matthews and so many others at a swinging party in Watts’ honor proved last week.
