An icon of New York in the 1980s, Jean-Michel Basquiat became renowned during his short career for works that draw on a multivalent range of sources, from Greek, Roman, and African art to jazz, pop culture, and his artistic contemporaries, most notably his close friend and collaborator Andy Warhol. These disparate influences are often juxtaposed in single works, which combine text and image in a cascade of visual information. A native New Yorker, Basquiat made graffiti under the tag “SAMO” as a teenager, and produced postcards and t-shirts before establishing his studio practice, finding fast fame at the age of 20. Though his career lasted barely a decade, Basquiat continues to have lasting relevance as a bridge between graffiti and the gallery, and as an influence to subsequent generations of artists.

MoMA’s collection of Basquiat’s work is focused on his drawings and prints, direct and intimate pieces in mediums that were central to his artistic practice.
