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