In his short career, Jean-Michel Basquiat was a phenomenon. From his early, cryptic street art to his meteoric rise to prominence in the New York art world, Basquiat exhibited genius. He infused his work with an intentional childishness that contrasted sharply with his catalog of intellectual, anatomical, sociopolitical, historical, and graphic influences.
By the time of his premature death in the 1980s he was no less than the prince of the post-pop scene. Combining never-before-seen interview footage with commentary from friends and contemporary art world luminaries, Davis offers a compelling introduction to a singularly driven creative personality, an artist who could paint masterpieces in an hour (earning him Andy Warhol's extreme jealousy) and find endless inspiration in the oversaturated culture from which he emerged.
