Noted for his graffiti street paintings under the name pseudonym 'SAMO', Jean-Michel Basquiat was born in Brooklyn.  His father was Haitian-born Gerard Basquiat.  His mother, Matilde Andradas, had been born in Brooklyn of Puerto Rican parents.  He had two sisters (born in 1963 and 1966) also born in Brooklyn.

When only a small boy, Basquiat began drawing, inspired by the cartoons and Hitchcock films he watched on television.  He also loved to read comic books and Ma (showing 500 of 16631 characters).
