Episode details

From street graffiti artist to a self-taught, modern expressionist, Jean-Michel Basquiat lived a dramatic, chaotic, and brilliant life as his paintings. He was a modern polymath. His passion was painting, but he was also a musician and an actor. He was convinced from a very young age that he would be famous, that he would be someone special, but at the same time, he self-sabotaged himself through reckless behavior and drug abuse. He was an anomaly and a contradiction, as was his work. His painting has been described as beautiful yet chaotic, charming yet mischievous. The same could be said for him as a person.
