    if you are going to read an art biography read this one especially if you appreciate his effed up graffiti art, with the poor lad dying at 27....great reading about back in the day with warhol, madonna (pre-mega fame), studio 54, early hip hop culture Wish I was there.

    An overview of Jean Michel Basquiat's short but prolific career, set in the midst of punk culture and pop art in the 80's. The story is fascinating in itself, but some of the writing seemed too casual and slangy even for the biography of a graffiti artist turned modern art sensation.
