Jean-Michel Basquiat was an American artist who became an icon of the Neo-expressionist art movement in the 80s due to his works: graffiti and paintings. Based in New York, Basquiat created works which were rich in symbolism and color. His paintings contained skeletical figures and masked faces with gestures, urban life elements, writings, and unrelated images that blended perfectly to create collages.
