Fire Starter: Jean Michel-Basquiat–The Radiant Child [2010 Sundance Film Festival Selection]

Posted in Art, Fashion, Politics, Video on August 5, 2010 by multitudenyc

Jean-Michael Basquiat— A tireless revolutionary wrapped in the beauty, pitfalls, and splendor of a continuous uphill battle with self, society, and the painful truths entangled in his storytelling. Once an anynymous New York street painter whose political prose took form in passionate pastel colors and paintings that placed power on the bodies of buildings across the five burroughs–Basquiat blazed a trail of colorful questions, created to challenge the status quo and expand the creative and cultural lens to see beyond the blasphemy this nation’s inheritance have performed toward the God of it’s world–LOVE.  Love is the root of Power. And the young genius guided the mortal masses on a powerful pictoral journey that now lasts an eternity–making heaven his canvas in a fight to paint the perfect picture of his life on Earth.  

“I start a picture, then I finish it. I don’t think about art whie I work. I try to think about Life”Basquiat

As his career spanned only a short decade, the Hispanic-African American artist ranks rightfully among the best artists of his generation. Subway walls, galleries, and city streets were all witness to the work of a magnificent talent. Known for his expressionist art–notably including text in his pieces–Basquiat often brought an Avant Garde approach to a collection of classical painters, including the great Leonardo Da Vinci.

Born in Brooklyn New York in 1960, he fell victim to an untimely death from a heroine overdose on August 12, 1988.

He was 27 years old.

#PEEP The Details for his Docu-Film entitled The Radiant Child running at the Film Forum in the West Village:

(Via Film Forum NY):

“Lively and touching… A thoroughly engaging film about an inimitable New York painter.”
– John DeFore, The Hollywood Reporter

“Tamra Davis creates a dazzling sense of the ‘80s New York art scene.”
– Caryn James, Newsweek

“Haunting! A moving meditation of a life cut short at 27.”
– Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times

“Tamra Davis has surpassed the art world’s expectations with THE RADIANT CHILD, the newly definitive Basquiat documentary, which superbly sets out the life and times of Jean-Michel Basquiat with never-seen-before first-hand footage of the artist; source and anecdotal interviews and quotes from almost every player in the 1980’s art scene in New York. Davis has her own masterpiece of which to be proud.”
– Elliot V. Kotek, Moving Pictures Magazine

The meteoric rise and fall of Jean-Michel Basquiat, born 1960 In the crime-ridden NYC of the 1970s, he covers the city with the graffiti tag SAMO. In 1981 he puts paint on canvas for the first time, and by 1983 he is an artist with “rock star status.” In 1985 he and Andy Warhol become close friends and painting collaborators, but they part ways and Warhol dies suddenly in 1987. Basquiat’s heroin addiction worsens, and he dies of an overdose in 1988. The artist was 25 years old at the height of his career, and today his canvases sell for more than a million dollars. With compassion and insight, Tamra Davis details the mysteries that surround this charismatic young man, an artist of enormous talent whose fortunes mirrored the rollercoaster quality of the downtown scene he seemed to embody.

Walk-Off Home Run: Nike Air Trainer 1.2 Ken Griffey Tribute Collection

Posted in Fashion, New Product on July 6, 2010 by multitudenyc

 

In honor of a All-Time great Centerfielder and Home-Run hitter  “The Kid” Ken Griffey Jr.–Nike created and recently released the Nike Air Trainer 1.2 in honor of the long-time Seattle Mariner.

Personally–Being born in Seattle and looking up to Griffey Jr. throughout my little-league playing career, his ability was unquestionable and his talent matched by very few. ALL the way to Ken Griffey Baseball on Super Nintendo! #Throwback90’s

#PEEP the description via Smoking Section:

These are a very nice tribute to the recently retired Ken Griffey, Jr. Paying homage to his contributions as an athlete and endorser, Nike creates a pair of Trainer 1.2’s, done in conventional Mariners’ colors of medium grey-fresh white-teal. The cherry on top? The cap cocked to the back – just like The Kid would do it – hanging off the last “0″ in the “600″ on the heel (a nod to his 630 career homers).
