This piece is acrylic on found wood.
Wojnarowicz was from New Jersey and briefly went to the High School of Performing Arts (can you say "Fame"?).
He dropped out and lived on the street as a prostitute. He later apparently became a farmer. Wojnarowicz was also one of the many artists to run afoul of the Catholic Church (although the furor was almost a decade after he died).
P.P.O.W. Gallery held a retrospective of the artist's work entitled Spirituality in 2011.
