Synopsis

Jean-Michel Basquiat (Jeffrey Wright) is an unknown graffiti artist in early Eighties New York until he sells some sketches to Andy Warhol (David Bowie). Suddenly, Basquiat is the darling of the art scene, living the hedonistic sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll lifestyle to the full. However, his increasing dependence on heroin and self-destructive tendencies threaten his life and career.
