“To be an artist is to have truely (sic) lived. See the world with your own eyes”. Note left on the grave of Jean-Michel Baquiat.

Here is the full grave. Another simple memorial. Like Bernstein, there are plenty of things left here. I have seen rocks, notes, coins, paint brushes, food, and other trinkets.

  1. What a remarkable thing it is to have produced something that inspires people to come to your grave and leave such personal expressions of gratitude.

  2. Real interesting read. I agree that the headstone seems rather simple for the style of art he was known for. The note left was very poignant.
