MY EXPERIENCE

 

Every single line means something.

                  ~ Jean-Michel Basquiat

 

 

ARTIST STATEMENT

 

“If it was perfect, it would not be considered art. I look at my experience with breast cancer as God's way of making me appreciate the blessings that I have. So I can only feel sorry for those who will never have the same opportunity. My survival is my inspiration.”
