Artists Who Committed Suicide (8 person items)

"Jean-Michel Basquiat began his artistic career while in his teenage years, as a graffiti artist in Manhattan, before transitioning to painting later in life. His work quickly attracted widespread acclaim for its depth and composition and Basquiat was soon the toast of the art world. Unfortunately, the artist was also struggling with heroin addiction and died of a "speedball" overdose (essentially a mix of heroin and cocaine) when he was only 27. "
