Born in 1960 and died in 1988.
Jean-Michel Basquiat has the most surprising past for a successful artist. His debut in the contemporary art world was a sensation. However, it didn't take long for a teenager who was a cocaine addict but drew graffiti on the subway to be recognized for his talent. He was also fortunate to meet Anina Nosey, who has a reputation for discovering young talents such as David Saale and Steve Mueller. The paintings, in which the loneliness of existence is felt in the energetic and infinitely bright colors, were sympathetic to the same generation.
The beat that individuality sets out is similar to soul music, attracting us and not letting go.
