Showcase: Jean-Michel Basquiat

As part of SAMO, an informal graffiti duo who wrote enigmatic epigrams in the cultural hotbed of the Lower East Side of Manhattan during the late 1970s where the hip hop, post-punk, and street art movements had coalesced, Jean-Michel Basquiat managed to get the attention of many of the days artists, including Andy Warhol. His mixed art made use of poetry, drawing, and painting.

  1. BASQUAIT(SAMO). SUBTERRANEAN TRAIL-BLAZER.
    ROCK-‘N’-ROLL AESTHETIC EQUAL TO HENDRIX AND ALL THE OTHER ADVENTUROUS MAVERICK OUTSIDERS ON THIS PLANET.
    BASQUAIT WILL ALWAYS BE THE FIRST ARTIST TO BE CONSIDERED AS ALSO A VERY ROCK-‘N’-ROLL ARTISTE.
