Jean-Michel Basquiat was notorious for his graffiti art under the moniker Samo in the late 1970s on the Lower East Side, sold his first painting to Deborah Harry for $200 and became best friends with Andy Warhol. Appreciated by both the art cognoscenti and the public, Basquiat was launched into international stardom. However, his cult status began to override the art that made him famous in the first place. As a successful black artist, he was constantly confronted by racism and misconceptions. Director Tamra Davis pays homage to her friend in this definitive documentary.

Basquiat’s bebop-influenced neoexpressionist work emerged while minimalist, conceptual art was the fad. Much can be gleaned from insider interviews and archival footage, but it is Basquiat’s own words and work that powerfully convey the mystique and allure of both the artist and the man. Featuring interviews with Julian Schnabel, Larry Gagosian, Tony Shafrazi, Fab 5 Freddy, among many others.93min
