    Jean-Michel Basquiat first achieved notoriety as part of SAMO, an informal graffiti duo born in the Lower East Side of Manhattan during the late 1970s. Basquiat said that Picasso‚Äôs mural-size painting, Guernica, had a great impact on him when he first saw it as a teen-ager at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City. “SAMO Guernica” is my fictional collaboration between the two great artists.
