Pharrell: A Fish Doesn’t Know It’s Wet
Following Rizzoli’s perfect-selling Pharrell: Places and Spaces I’ve Been, this volume documents the continued adventures in art and design of some of the influential figures in recent music and popular culture.
Lavishly illustrated with 250 photographs and illustrations, this book features Pharrell Williams’s prolific and ever-expanding body of work in a graphic language all his own.
Straddling art, design, and hip-hop, Pharrell’s creative output is without peer or precedent. By playing off different disciplines—music, fashion, and recent art—Pharrell has redefined the role of the recent artist, blazing a trail for other musicians and cultural figures. Expanding on themes covered in Places and Spaces I’ve Been, this book gathers a new group of collaborators. Engaging Pharrell in conversation, talents as diverse as Karl Lagerfeld and Takashi Murakami position Pharrell’s work within recent visual and subject material culture.
The around the globe success of the song “Happy” to his soundtrack and production credit for the Oscar-nominated film Hidden Figures bookend a volume devoted to Pharrell’s mastery of artistic collaboration. Featuring work with artists as diverse as JR, Alex Katz, Mr., and Daniel Arsham, the book highlights up to date projects and designs for Chanel, Moncler, Moynat, and Adidas. But on the heart is the visual language that Pharrell has built around his Ice Cream/Billionaire Boys Club clothing line, which integrates streetwear into the design of apparel, accessories, limited-edition toys, and skate graphics. This on my own makes the book a will have to-have collectible.
