Con Artist
A character-driven dark comedy, Con Artist examines themes of art, celebrity, fortune, fakery and the dark side of American culture through the controversial and contradictory persona of business artist Mark Kostabi. The son of Estonian immigrants, Kostabi was initially seen as an exceptional talent and, upon his move to New York City, soon became a successful art star, rocketing to international fame and fortune during the 1980s art / punk / hip hop boom. He accomplished this with a gimmick: to mass-produce, sign, and sell thousands of paintings per year, conceived of and executed not by himself, but by a revolving stable of hired hands supported by an energetic PR team. Eventually, his brazen Capitalistic greed, overt self-promotion and outrageous behavior caused a remarkable fall from grace during the 1990s recession.
