Happy Birthday Jean-Michel Basquiat. It’s no surprise that Jean-Michel Basquiat was the wunderkid of the 80′s along side heavyweights like Andy Warhol, Keith Herring and Julian Schnabel. Basquiat’s works blurred the lines of art with his graffiti and historical references. Sadly a victim to drug use, he succumbed to it and passed away from an overdose on August 12, 1988. Today we remember him for challenging our perceptions and the concept of ”art”.
