Jean-Michel Basquiat

There are really no words to describe this Artist. He is an influence on everyone working in abstraction and the imagination and honesty in his work is stunning. I think about his legacy every time I paint.

Jean-Michel Basquiat was born on December 22, 1960, in Brooklyn, New York. He first attracted attention for his graffiti under the name “SAMO” in New York City. He sold sweatshirts and postcards featuring his artwork on the streets before his painting career took off. He collaborated with Andy Warhol in the mid-1980s, which resulted in a show of their work. Basquiat died on August 12, 1988, in New York City.
