I don’t listen to what art critics say. I don’t know anybody who needs a critic to find out what art is.

Jean Michel Basquiat

Mona Lisa 1983

Jean-Michel Basquiat (December 22, 1960 – August 12, 1988) was an American artist and the first African-American painter to become an international art star. He gained popularity first as a graffiti artist in New York City, and then as a successful 1980s-era Neo-expressionist artist. Basquiat’s paintings continue to influence modern-day artists and sell for high prices.
