“I don’t think about art, while working. I think about life” – Jean Michele Basquiat
Jean-Michel Basquiat 1960-1988. Only twenty-eight years, a short time during the one he has always expressed himself in paintings. He is not a street artist. Someone calls him, along with Keith Haring, a graffiti artist. He has brought this kind of art from the streets to the galleries. He is actually something more and not easily labeled.
