In the 1980s, Basquiat became a central figure in the New York art scene, collaborating with other artists like Andy Warhol, with whom he developed a friendship and close artistic collaboration. Their work together resulted in iconic works that fused the two artists' distinct styles.

Despite his short career, Basquiat left a lasting artistic legacy.
