Artist Marco Brambilla Commissioned By Kanye West
Kanye West has commissioned a video work by critically acclaimed artist, Marco Brambilla, to accompany the release of his new single “Power” from his upcoming album. Keep reading for more…
Power is a neo-classical video tableau, a single continuous camera move from an extreme close up of Mr. West gradually revealing an epic composition showing characters and creatures surrounding him in an abstract environment – all moving in extreme slow motion. Inspired by Michelangelo’s frescos in the Sistine Chapel, the piece depicts a faux historical moment – an empire on the brink of collapse from its own excess, decadence and corruption.
I can’t wait to see what they both come up with. To check out more on this artist and his collection of works go to www.marcobrambilla.com
