Polka Dot Shirt and a New-Wave Jacket
"Hey, I'm Jean-Michel Basquiat." With a drink and the omni-present cigarette in his hand, an air of excitement was evident as we danced to the Iggy Pop song, Lust for Life. The dance he was doing was very unique. Michael Holman would later call it The Tyrannosaurus Rex because Jean-Michel would hold his hands close to his chest, his long legs lunging toward the nearby dancers and then dropping back. Jean-Michel had an incredible hairstyle that resembled a birds footprint on the top of his head. In this photograph, he was wearing a polka-dot shirt with a kind of New-Wave white jacket.
