Lee Jaffe Photographs Basquiat

jaffe1-500x735

Lee Jaffe photographs the legendary Jean Michel-Basquiat painting in Jamaica. Basquiat gained popularity first as a graffiti artist in New York City, and then as a successful 1980s-era Neo-expressionist artist. In 1977, when he was 17, Basquiat started spray painting graffiti on slum buildings in lower Manhattan, adding his signature/tag of “SAMO” or “SAMO shit”(same ol’ shit). (This is where I got the tag idea from). You can also visit Lee Jaffe’s site here.
