Basquiat, Jean-Michel:Notorious street artist who rapidly rose to fame in the 1980s with his graffiti and ghetto-style art. He invented an alter ego 'Samo,' a fictional character who earned a living selling 'fake' religion. Basquiat's primitive imagery was influenced by commercial art, comic books, baseball cards, and events such as the Kennedy assassination. He also made biting social commentary on stereotypical black images and events. In 1983, he met Andy Warhol, with whom he often collaborated. Basquiat died of a drug overdose in 1988.
