In a madcap art world obsessed with money, fame, and hype, how does an artist driven by justice, defiance and his own singular style thrive? Art Bastard is the rousing tale of Robert Cenedella, a rebel who never fit into today’s art world, yet has become one of its most provocative, rabble-rousing characters. At once a portrait of the artist as a young troublemaker, an alternate history of modern art and a quintessential New York story, Art Bastard is as energetic, humorous and unapologetically honest as the uncompromising man at its center.
