Jean-Michel Basquiat (1960-1988) was born and raised in Brooklyn. Is one of the most acclaimed artists to come out of 1980's art boom by introducing street art and graffiti to the elitist New York art Scene.
At the age of twenty, he had turned from spraying graffiti on the walls of buildings in Lower Manhattan to selling paintings in SoHo galleries.
He died of a heroin overdose at the age of 27, in 1988.
