http://www.vernissage.tv | Takashi Murakami & Pharrell Williams: The Simple Things / Art 40 Basel / Interview with Pharrell Williams

At Art 40 Basel, Galerie Emmanuel Perrotin presented a 6-foot Takashi Murakami sculpture, made in collaboration with the U.S. record producer and designer Pharrell Williams. The object is titled The Simple Things. It features a glass-fiber, steel and acrylic head based on Murakami's cartoon-inspired signature character Mr. Dob. In its mouth you find objects which are the essentials in Pharrell Williams' everyday life: A can of Pepsi, a cup cake, a sneaker and bottle of Johnsons baby lotion. These objects are encrusted with 26'000 diamonds and gems.

In this interview with Ute Thon (Art Magazin), Pharrell Williams talks about how cooperation came about, the idea behind the sculpture, his interest in art and design, the artists and designers he admires, and his own design works.
