Ted Joans (1928-2003) was a poet and artist and influential figure in the beat movement. His poetry and performances drew on jazz, surrealism and the African American oral tradition. He is considered by some to be a forerunner of the poetry slam movement. With a degree in fine arts from Indiana University, Joans made paintings, assemblages, collages and drawings. He was friends with Allen Ginsberg and Jack Kerouac and roomed with Charlie Parker in New York. He is known as the originator of the Bird Lives graffiti ubiquitous after Parker's death. Joans famously said, Jazz is my religion and surrealism is my point of view.
