Jean-Michel Basquiat (1960 –1988) was an American artist, musician and producer. He first achieved notice as part of SAMO, a graffiti group in the cultural hotbed of the Lower East Side of Manhattan, New York City during the late 1970s where the hip hop, post-punk and street art movements had together. By the 1980s he was exhibiting his Neo-expressionist and Primitivist paintings in galleries and museums internationally. Befriended by Andy Warhol, Basquiat collaborated with the renowned Pop Artist on 100 artworks. Despite a career tragically cut short by a heroin overdose, Basquiat introduced the unique African-American and Latino experience to the elite art world. In 1992, The Whitney Museum of American Art held a retrospective of his art.
