Artist | Jean-Michel Basquiat aka SAMO

I’ve geeked out to documentaries about Jean-Michel Basquiat on a few occasions.  Obviously an innovative and important part of American art, Basquiat is also alluring as an artist.  His story is both sad and impressive, has ups and downs, and then ends so abruptly.  I feel like the early 80’s and right now in the US have a lot in common…  Let’s be innovative people.

And do some homework on Basquiat, trust me.
