Whether you adore him or abhor him, see him as a prescient genius or a privileged dirtbag, there’s virtually no middle ground when it comes to artist Jordan Wolfson.

“He just struck me as such a great character study,” says James Crump, director of the new documentary “Spit Earth: Who is Jordan Wolfson?” on why he chose the polarizing artist as his latest subject.

The documentary, which made its streaming debut yesterday on Vimeo, doesn’t offer a clear answer, but it does feature some notable names willing to weigh in with their own two cents on the artist.

“He’s a psycho. He’s a monster,” says Stefan Kalmár, director of the Institute of Contemporary Arts, London, while recalling a fund-raising video Wolfson once made.  “It’s like a short YouTube movie someone posts before he goes on a shooting rampage.  It’s scary.”
