Get Your Art Fix With “Jean-Michel Basquiat: The Radiant Child”

23 Aug

 

In need of some creative inspiration on the quick? Then head to New York’s Film Forum to catch Tamra Davis’ documentary on the spectacular rise (and tragic fall) of graffiti artist-turned-Neo-Expressionist Jean-Michel Basquiat. Act ASAP—today’s the last day to get an inside peek into the gritty New York art scene of the ‘70s and ‘80s. Basquiat’s vivid strokes will have you reaching for the closest paintbrush—you may even be tempted to customize your fave pair of 7s after watching the flick….or you can play it safe and get a ready-made work of art, like our metallic paint-streaked Roxannes

Jean-Michel Basquiat: The Radiant Child; Until August 24 (tomorrow).
