Jean-Michel Basquiat

- Selected Works
- Biography

(New York 1960 – 1988)

He was one of the most important exponents of American graffiti movement that, in parallel to artist Keith Haring, was transferred from the original metropolitan roads to art galleries.
His friendship with Andy Warhol takes him to a quick renown in the art world and several collaborations with leading artists. The drug addiction of which he suffered since his adolescence leads him to a premature end.
