If you don't know anything about John Baldessari, here's a quick and highly entertaining way to get up to speed on this living American legend. The great voice of Tom Waits narrates this five-minute documentary about Baldessari and his work. Considered by many to be the godfather of conceptual art, his work goes far beyond photography. He began as a painter, and eventually got into mixed media. His canvasses often feature both text and photography. Baldessari has received countless awards and recognition in his lengthy career. He also had a dramatic influence on the likes of Cindy Sherman and Barbara Kruger.
