An Iconic Presence: The Charismatic Aura of Jean-Michel Basquiat

“When you met Jean-Michel you understood why that line and signature were so powerful. He was a personality unlike any other—a remarkable breadth, intelligence, passion, sympathy, and generosity. He was a person with such charisma and strength of character that just his look, a few terse comments, a few lines drawn on paper, could communicate so much.”
