- The Artist
Jean-Michel Basquiat’s “Icarus Himself” may equate the artist with a modern-day hero who hurls himself at the infernos raging in society's outcasts. Born in Brooklyn of Haitian and Puerto Rican descent, Basquiat (1960- 1988) was originally a graffiti artist known as “SAMO.” Graduating from walls to canvases, Basquiat presented a one-man show that solidified his stature in the art world. Andy Warhol befriended him, and the pair collaborated on many works. Basquiat became one of the most acclaimed artists of his generation, and one of only a few Hispanic/African-American artists to achieve international recognition.
One of the most original and influential artists of his generation, Jean-Michel Basquiat (1960 – 1988) produced deceptively unsophisticated-looking works that belied a complex and unique talent. Born in Brooklyn of Haitian and Puerto Rican descent, Basquiat first gained notoriety with graffiti artwork. He catapulted to fame with paintings that incorporated a fusion of words, symbols, stick figures, animals, and historical and cultural references. 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.
