little people, big dreams – jean-michel basquiat


Jean-Michel was born in Brooklyn, New York, to a Puerto Rican mother and Haitian father. 

When he was eight and recovering from an accident in bed, his mother gave him a copy of Gray’s Anatomy, which sparked his interest in the human form.

As a teenager, he gained recognition as part of the graffito duo SAMO that spray-painted cryptic messages and images around the landscape of Manhattan’s Lower East Side.
