Jonmarc Owens Art 100 9-June-2019 Jean Michel Basquiat "The Radiant Child" 1. What is your personal response to how Basquiat developed as an artist? What did you find interesting about his path? A. I find it interesting how Jean Basquiat was able to connect with all types of people. I grew up similar in a sense, because I started out living rather poor; having an uneducated single mother of three that worked many hours in an industrial plant just to make ends meet. Then, when I turned 15 I moved in with my grandparents who were much more well off. Both worked for Clemson University and my grandfather inherited more than 200 acers of land. I am grateful to have been given that opportunity, because of how it allowed me to connect with others from all walks of life. I found it interesting that Basquiat came to prominence as a graffiti artist in the East Village of New York. Then, as East Village started transitioning from a burnt-out wasteland of heroin addicts to an epicenter for the art boom, Basquiat became more marketable.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
