To celebrate the artist’s enduring influence and the upcoming auction of his seminal painting, Dustheads (1982), we set out to uncover untold stories of the famously enigmatic artist. In a three-part video series, we talk with two of Basquiat’s intimate artist friends, Toxic (like a little brother) and Al Diaz (the other half of the infamous graffiti crew, SAMO), about the real Basquiat. We also went backstage at a Macklemore concert in Baltimore to ask the Pratt-educated rapper about Basquiat’s influence on him as a street-savvy musician on the rise.
