I’m a very big fan of superstar musicians taking not so mainstream creators and taking them to the highest level of stardom. Kanye previously has collaborated with Takashi Murakami, which I suspect he fell in love with after Murakami had done all that work for Louis Vuitton. If anything in times like these where the arts and humanities are being cut in funding, I am giving Kanye West a high five for showing how important both fields are. Kanye West tweeted the banned album cover for his upcoming album. The cover already looked censored to me, and looked similar to the New Pornographers Mass Romantic cover. You know, even if this is banned-George Condo can create something just as beautiful (that is if he did make that cover), check out some of his work below.
