Jean-Michel Basquiat was an American artist who intrigued many with his neo-expressionist paintings. Michael used social commentary in his paintings to deepen the truth of his artwork and tell politically acute stories. Basquiat went from being homeless and unemployed to selling single paintings for up to $25,000 in a matter of years. His drive and determination to shake the world with his art, reminds me a lot of Stefon Penn. Mostly known as "Dat Artist," Stephon can be seen bringing every canvas he touches to life. Check out our interview below and see how Michael Basquiat became his artist inspiration. Mad love to his artwork and brand.
