Born in 1960 to a Haitian father and Puerto Rican mother, Jean-Michel was brought onto this earth not knowing the greatness that was in store for him. Ever since his young age, Basquiat was always fascinated by art and drawing. He would often find inspiration from cartoons and would create sketches that he would give to his parents as a token of his love. After leaving his father's home at the age of 15, Jean-Michel began his journey as an artist in New York. Although he had hit rough patches on his road to notoriety, Jean-Michel Basquiat became an influential artist. Even now in 2017, 28 years (August 12th will make 29 years) after his death, his art lives on and inspires others to create from a place of raw passion.
