Jean-Michel Basquiat was a rock star of the early 80s art scene: he lived fast, died young and created thousands of drawings and paintings. It took less than a decade to go from anonymous graffiti writer to an epoch-defining art star. He has emerged as one of the most important artists of his generation and his work is now exhibited in museums all over the world.

The art this man produced makes my heart pound; the depth of it is like the ocean, for me. To see his focus is wonderful! To watch his interviews with pathetically ill-informed simpletons is painful. I am sorry he destroyed himself but in so many ways I do think he ascended.

This is one of four artist profiles that PBS showcased this summer (Andrew Wyeth and Elizabeth Murray were two of the others, also on dvd). I did not know much about this artist so appreciated the film's comprehensive look at his groundbreaking work and all-too-brief life.
