The Radiant Child
It's both sad and amazing that the artist Jean-Michel Basquiat was only 27 when he died of a heroin overdose in 1988. He truly was a talented yet tortured artist who has left us with a beautiful legacy of paintings. His friend Tamra Davis interviewed him in 1986 but the footage remained unseen until now. Her film Jean-Michel Basquiat: The Radiant Child will open at the Film Forum July 21st and will run through August 3rd. It will also be screened in other cities so be sure to check the screening schedule.
