has to be one of the best films i've seen. Set in the drug laden art scene of New York in the 1980's. This film depicts the life of struggling but ambitious fame hungry graffiti artist Jean-Michel Basquait. Warhole played by David Bowie! recognises his talent and is part responsible for his rise to fame, where Basquait then finds himself being exploited by the calous art world!
a real compelling blend of Sex Drugs and Modern Art! it also has a fantassstic soundtrack!

Journalist; Do you consider yourself a painter, or a black painter?
Basquiat; Oh no i paint with lots of colours not just black

no one wants to be part of a generation that ignores another Van Gogh

  1. Welp, you got my curiosity. I shall be spending my Friday night with Basquait.
