Jean Michel Basquiat net worth, biography and wiki:

Jean-Michel Basquiat (December 22, 1960 – August 12, 1988) was an American artist, musician and producer. Basquiat first achieved notoriety as part of SAMO, an informal graffiti group who wrote enigmatic epigrams in the cultural hotbed of the Lower East Side of Manhattan, New York City during the late 1970s where the hip hop, post-punk and street art movements had coalesced. By the 1980s he was exhibiting his Neo-expressionist and Primitivist paintings in galleries and museums internationally. The Whitney Museum of American Art held a retrospective of his art in 1992.Basquiat's art focused on "suggestive dichotomies," such as wealth versus poverty, integration versus segregation, and inner versus outer experience. He appropriated poetry, drawing and painting, and married text and image, abstraction and figuration, and historical information mixed with contemporary critique.Basquiat used social commentary in his paintings as a "springboard to deeper truths about the individual", as well as attacks on power structures and systems of racism, while his poetics were acutely political and direct in their criticism of colonialism and support for class struggle.

5The movie Basquiat (1996) starring Jeffrey Wright is a biopic of his discovery by Andy Warhol, their intense friendship, the racism he endured in the art world, and the drug habit that eventually killed him.
6In 1977, he and his friend Al Diaz began spray painting subway walls with cryptic sayings, always signing them "SAMO" ("Same Old Shit"). He always said SAMO was an end to mindwash religion, nowhere politics and bogus philosophy. His idea was to write anti-materialism in plain view of some of the worst materialists around. Painted on unconventional objects retrieved from the junkyard, he seemed to be attacking bourgeois society.
