The New York art world saw a drastic and fundamental change in the early '80s. Money began to flow into the art market, and artists like Andy Warhol, Keith Haring, and Jean-Michel Basquiat skyrocketed to fame and fortune. But these artists were making art and creating culture well before they ever knew that artists had the potential to make a career—and a successful career at that. In the upcoming film Boom for Real: The Late Teenage Years of Jean-Michel Basquiat, filmmaker Sara Driver follows Basquiat and the New York City graffiti scene, people, and culture that helped shape him into the artist we remember him as. Check out the trailer below:

 

The film opens in select theaters May 11.
