Jean-Michel Basquiat is a major source of inspiration. The Brooklyn-born artist had a strong sense of his purpose from early on. Though he struggled with self-doubt like we all do at times, his inner drive pushed him along.
Basquiat’s painting style was original and bold. His art is abstract yet very direct in its message, making heavy use of primary colors and written words. He had his own vision and spent his best years getting it out. While he died a tragic death too young, his legacy lives on. The hip-hop world has a fascination with his work. He’s also made his way into fashion.
