Wojnarowicz was a painter, photographer, film maker, writer,
performance artist and activist who was prominent in New York City
during the 80s. Up to his early death of AIDS complications at the age
of 37 he led a turbulent life and created controversial masterpieces
such as his Super8 films, his series of Arthur Rimbaud, and his stencil
work while exhibiting in well-known galleries and interacting with most
prolific artists of his time. Today, he still remains an important
influence on many contemporary artists' work.
