"SaMO" (Same-O) State of Mind
- Unit Price
"SaMO" (Same-O) is a graffiti tag originally used on the streets of New York City from 1978 to 1980. The tag, written with a copyright symbol as "SAMO©", and pronounced Same-Oh is primarily associated with the artist Jean-Michel Basquiat, but was originally developed as a collaboration between Basquiat and his friend and collaborator Al Diaz.
The SAMO tag accompanied short phrases, which were poetic and satirical advertising slogans, mainly spray painted on the streets of downtown Manhatten. Basquiat eventually used the tag himself, creating some non-graffiti work on paper and canvas using that tag, after killing off the SAMO graffiti by painting "SAMO© IS DEAD" around the streets of downtown.
