Jean-Michel Basquiat: Now’s the Time at Art Gallery of Ontario

In the late 1970s in New York City there was a street kid artist named Jean-Michel Basquiat. A Brooklyn born kid of Haitian descent, this street kid was a talented artist who expressed himself through graffiti and tagging subway cars, warehouse doors, pieces of wood found on the street--anywhere on anything. His artwork commented on the over-hyped, over-commercialized world that served the few at the expense of the many and he would sign his work "SAMO" followed by a copyright symbol.
