We all saw this coming, didn't we?
The distinguished rapper [Kanye West] has earned himself a new title in the new issue of Carine Roitfeld‘s CR Fashion Book – that of “art curator.” Inspired by Jolie Laide, West has curated a diverse range of works featuring artists such as Richard Prince, Anish Kapoor, Paul McCarthy and Cecily Brown. The full collection, titled “Blud Rush,” is in issue 6 of CR Fashion Book.
The issue also features an accompanying text by Yeezus himself. Behold an excerpt:
I am moved by visions that feel very physical, very aggressive –where the body is molded and shaped, twisted and beaten into existence. Within these works, I locate my affinity for — or maybe my addiction to — the body.
