Jean-Michel Basquiat
Jean-Michel Basquiat was a successful American artist in the 1980s. Considered one of the most influential artists of the 20th century, he was part of the New Expression movement. Basquiat first rose to prominence as a member of SAMO, a graffiti duo that wrote mysterious symbols in the hot culture of Manhattan's Lower East Side in the late 1970s, where rap, punk and Street art combine the culture of early hip-hop music. In the early 1980s, his paintings were exhibited in international galleries and museums. At the age of 21, Basquiat became the youngest artist to document in Kassel. At 22, he was the youngest to be exhibited at the Whitney Biennial in New York. The Whitney Museum of American Art held a reminiscence of his work in 1992. Basquiat's art focuses on the dichotomy of wealth, integration versus distinction, and the inside experience is against the outside experience.
