Jean-Michel Basquiat Caricature

A quick digital painting exercise on a Sunday morning.

He was the first painter of African descent to become an international art star. Started as a graffiti artist, he conquered the art world in the eighties, ending up with a long friendship with Andy Warhol, who died one year before him. His enormous appetite for drugs killed him at 27. On emight say that 27 is a dangerous age for drugs using artists (Morrison, Joplin, Hendrix...)
