Jean-Michel Basquiat: The Radiant Child

$ 29.95

In this highly personal and provocative documentary, a distinguished selection from the SUNDANCE film festival, director Tamra Davis honors her friend Jean-Michel as she traces his artistic journey from the obscure Lower East Side Samo graffiti artist in the late 1970’s to the prolific neoexpressionist painter of international stardom, with inspiring conversations and archival studio footage.

Speckled with luminaries from every corner of the art world, all touched by Basquiat the man and Basquiat the artist, this powerful presentation of his legacy reveals the challenges he confronted as a successful black artist working against current trends.
