Jean-Michel Basquiat

Discover the extraordinary artistic legacy of Jean-Michel Basquiat, whose multimedia creations encompass a wide range of forms, from sculptural collage to expansive canvases. Basquiat's works have achieved global recognition and are celebrated as some of the most iconic in the art world.

Emerging onto the scene as one half of the renowned street-art duo SAMO in the late 1970s, Basquiat quickly garnered a cult following. He later embarked on a solo journey, refining a distinctive style characterized by compulsive scribbles, enigmatic diagrams, and cryptic symbols.

While Basquiat drew inspiration from diverse sources, his Caribbean heritage held a particular significance in shaping his artistic vision. In 1980, he made his first sale, with Debbie Harry purchasing one of his paintings for $200. Notably, Basquiat's auction record stands at an astounding $110.5 million, achieved in May 2017.
