Eccentric. Artist. Recluse. Genius. Pop artist Martin Sharp defined the sixties and transformed the way we saw the world. This is the inside story of his life and passions – revealed for the first time by Martin Sharp and his inner circle, including Eric Clapton, Jenny Kee, Oz Magazine’s Richard Neville, “Little” Nell & Cressida Campbell, and more.
“This lovely film takes us back to that time when art was beginning to merge with reality in cavernous spaces”
“The Sharp Edge: The Art of Martin Sharp finds him occasionally struggling for breath, but never for inspiration or motivation"
