Basquiat in Heaven

Jean-Michel Basquiat  (1960-1988)
SAMO: Jean Michel Basquiat, Painted on Refrigerators, Walls and Trash from the streets of New York. Creating Voodoo-figures, writing thoughts, glueing photocopies, drips, footprints, nails, advertisments… Poetry, Jazz, Hip Hop. Everything is possible with Basquiat. Love it. Hate it.
From the Grafitti Walls of New York onto the Walls of every Modern Art Museum. At the age of 27 he blasted himself into Heaven:
For ever Flying his Refrigerator Rocket through a Cacophony of Dino’s and Jazz in Heaven…
