5 Awesome Documentaries On Art (That You Can Watch For Free Online)

As I mentioned earlier this week, I’m not really a big visual art person. I am, however, a giant nerd about documentaries. So, here are a few about art that I dig and are online and free to watch.

“In The Realms Of The Unreal”

“The Legend of Leigh Bowery”

Check out this documentary about legendary performance artist and fashion icon Leigh Bowery, also known for running Taboo–the infamous London nightclub that later inspired Boy George’s musical by the same name.


This doc explores the lives and passions of six American graffiti artists, and why they are willing to risk breaking the law in order to pursue their art.

“Waste Land”

This award winning documentary chronicles the effort of artist Vic Muniz to turn found items found in the world’s largest landfill into art. This is just the trailer, but it’s available to stream on Hulu.
