Caught Basquiat and I in the act.

Abel and Basquiat graffiti

Basquiat and Abel got along pretty well, you know, back in the late 1970s, when the hip hop, post-punk and street art movements began erupting and forming a completely new generation of artists and creative souls. Like many artists, Jean-Michel was all about social criticism, but he done it in a way never seen before. Not many peeps knew how to appreciate his talent. Art ain’t always about the aesthetics, form, and appeal, nah man, it’s supposed to move you from within, make you think about yourself and the world. “Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time.” Think about it, allow yourself to get lost, and found, the next time you gaze upon on of the magnificent artworks by our man Basquiat… R.I.P. SAMO
