Jean-Michel Basquiat was born in 1960, only lived to be 27 years old, and died in 1988.

In the late 1970s, he first gained public recognition as a New York graffiti artist, and later he became a successful new Neo-ist artist in the 1980s.

Basquiat’s work still deeply influences contemporary artists and is of great value.

Basquiat became the youngest artist to exhibit at the Whitney Biennial in New York at the age of 22, and his year-long friendship with Andy Warhol was also talked about.

In 1988, 27-year-old Basquiat died suddenly of an overdose. His short life became a highlight in New York in the 1980s.

Basquiat’s works were despised by many art circles during his lifetime, but his paintings became very popular in collectors after his death.

Currently, “Samo Lives” has no specific filming plan and release schedule.
