[ Here’s to the Creative Ones | SAMO Basquiat ]

Believe it or not, I can actually draw. –Basquiat

Like James, Jimmy and Janice, he was world famous by 23 and dead at 27. Artist. Rebel. Genius. From SAMO© the graffiti sprayer to pop-culture icon dazzling the fine art capitals of the world.

To this joyful city he came. Exactly once. Intrigued by New Orleans’ exotic beauty, its African influences and Caribbean ways. His only trace seemingly six largely unknown polaroids with hand-written notes intended as source material for his paintings.

Join us as four artists honor his life and legacy, inspired by the man and this place, mindful of these photographs and what might have been.
