Downtown 81 - Jean Michel Basquiat - NYC Graffiti Writer & Artist





Im a Big Fan of NYC Graffiti Writer & World Renowed Artist Jean Michel Basquiat! The 1981 Movie "Downtown 81" Starring Basquiat is one of the first ever Hip-Hop/Graffiti/B-Boy Movies ever Made...

Jean-Michel Basquiat (December 22, 1960 – August 12, 1988) was an American artist, the first black American painter to become an international art star.[1] He gained popularity first as a graffiti artist in New York City, and then as a successful 1980s-era Neo-expressionist artist. Basquiat's paintings continue to influence modern-day artists and command high prices.
