Jean Michele Basquiat

I’m sure you can see from the name that this iconic brother was Haitian, but in case you didn’t know…

Definitely one of Haiti’s most outstanding talents, the late painter and graffiti artist’s work is still selling for millions, and continues to inspire a great deal of creative people, including rappers like Jay-Z, producer Swizz Beatz and more. Born in Brooklyn, Basquiat was the son of a Puerto Rican mother (Matilde Basquiat) and a Haitian father (Gerard Basquiat). His father was born in Port-au-Prince.
