Living in the mecca of street art, Jean-Michel Basquiat was one of the most popular street artists in NYC from 1976 to 1988. Though he lived quite short, he was able to clash minds with some of the most famous names in the art scene like Andy Warhol and Keith Haring. Aside from creating art on the streets, he was also able to showcase his work in top galleries. He used the tag SAMO in his works.
It’s amazing how his street art has influenced his canvas art and vice versa.
