NEW YORK ARTIST GETS HIS 15 MIN­UTES ... TIMES SIX

National Post (Latest Edition) - - POST MOVIES -

Andy Warhol said that, in the fu­ture, ev­ery­one would be famous for 15 min­utes. His con­tem­po­rary Robert Cenedella gets six times that in Art Bas­tard, a free­wheel­ing doc­u­men­tary from di­rec­tor Vic­tor Kanef­sky that ex­plores and cel­e­brates the life of the 76-year-old New York artist. Cen­della learned at the age of six that he was il­le­git­i­mate, and the knowl­edge that he be­gan life as an out­sider seems to have shaped much of his ca­reer. The artist’s huge New York paint­ings are typ­i­cally filled with peo­ple, an­i­mals and ve­hi­cles, all jostling for space and at­ten­tion. Art Bas­tard opens Oct. 14 at the Bloor Hot Docs cin­ema in Toronto. Cenedella will par­tic­i­pate in a Q&A by Skype fol­low­ing screen­ings on Friday at 6: 30, Saturday at 1 and Sunday at 4 p.m.
