'Boom for Real' looks at artist Jean-Michel Basquiat as a teen

Hosted by

Jean-Michel Basquiat’s painting of a skull sold for $110 million last year. That sale put Basquiat on the same level as Pablo Picasso and Andy Warhol. But when Basquiat was a teenager in the late ‘70s, he was just another aspiring artist on the Lower East Side with no money. A new documentary chronicles Basquiat's teenage years.
