The Simple Things at Art Basel

Thursday, June 18, 2009 | |

Speaking of diamond-encrusted objects...Of the many interesting pieces coming out of the post-Basel wrapups, I thought this video of Pharrell explaining his approach to his collaborative art piece (with Takashi Murakmi and Jacob the Jeweler was pretty fucking hilarious. The Simple Things features diamond-encrusted personal items beloved by Pharrell including a cupcake, a bag of Doritos, a bottle of Heinz ketchup, a can of Pepsi, a condom and a bottle of Johnson's baby oil. Note: the piece has already sold for $2.8 million. Thanks EatMeDaily!
