Simple Things are not-so-simple!

June 11, 2009

Brought to you by rapper Pharell Williams together with Takashi Murakami and Jacob & Co. (often referred to as Jacob the Jeweler) – This series of typical every day items such as a Pepsi can, condom wrapper, Heinz ketchup bottle, bag of Doritos, bottle of lotion, an athletic shoe and a cupcake have all been encrusted with diamonds and placed in a giant fiberglass, steel and acrylic psychedelic head. It may be one of the most ridiculously overrated art projects ever to be created, but apparently, this ‘masterpiece collaboration’ took over 2 years to complete and was subject of a furious bidding war at the preview and fetched a reported $2.8 Million.
