Jean-Michel Basquiat: The Radiant Child

In his short career, Jean-Michel Basquiat was a phenomenon. He became notorious for his graffiti art under the moniker SAMO in the late 1970s on New York City's Lower East Side scene, sold his first painting to Deborah Harry for nothing, and became best friends with Andy Warhol.

Appreciated by both the art cognoscenti and the public, Basquiat was launched into international stardom. However, soon his cult status began to override the art that had made him famous in the first place.

Director Tamra Davis pays homage to her friend in this definitive documentary that also delves into Basquiat as an iconoclast. His dense, bebop-influenced neoexpressionist work emerged while minimalist, conceptual art was the fad. This film also addresses that as a successful black artist, he was constantly confronted by racism and misconceptions.

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.

Directed by Tamra Davis.
