Louis Vuitton Collaborates With Artist Jonas Wood

Louis Vuitton, though based in Paris, will not sit out this New York Fashion Week. The maison will launch a textile collaboration with American artist Jonas Wood on Sept. 6, with the collection hitting stores worldwide by Sept 12.
Wood — who is known for colorful prints and paintings — has helped develop graphic shawls, silk scarves and stoles in wool and silk for Vuitton. They feature some of the artist’s best-known motifs like basketballs, colorful vegetation and facsimiles of pottery created by Wood’s wife, artist Shio Kusaka, all represented alongside Vuitton’s signature LV monogram.
Vuitton said its partnership with Wood represents the latest textile tie-up with a fine artist, the last being contemporary sculptor and painter, Alex Israel. Vuitton has also in the past collaborated with Sol LeWitt, James Rosenquist, Takashi Murakami, Richard Prince, Stephen Sprouse and Yayoi Kusama, among others.

Mvmt Collaborates With Artist Jeff Cole, Skateboarder Nyjah Huston

Mvmt is spreading its design wings. The Millennial-founded watch brand will introduce collaborations with digital artist Jeff Cole as well as top competitive skateboarder Nyjah Huston. They represent the brand’s first partnerships with an artist and professional athlete.
Both figures have put their own spin on Mvmt’s designs. Cole — whose graphic work has earned him more than 500,000 Instagram followers — sprung for a black and chrome motif with minimal face details. The style will launch on Sept. 4, priced at $ 180.
Huston — who is expected to compete at the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo — incorporated some of his own tattoo designs into his Mvmt watch. The style is tentatively scheduled to launch on Oct. 15 and has not yet been priced.
“This is an opportunity to give [Cole and Huston] a chance to express themselves, it’s Mvmt but with their twist. I think with Cole, specifically, having that digital expertise made him even more hands-on. He took the reins and was very opinionated in every piece of the process,” said Mvmt cofounder Jake Kassan.
Kassan said Mvmt — purchased by the Movado Group in October 2018 in a deal that afforded the brand many more resources — has not yet signed on

Epic Records Signs Dancehall & Hip-Hop Artist HoodCelebrityy

Day For Night 2017

Source: Rick Kern / Getty

The link between dancehall reggae and Hip-Hop music has long been established and studied by fans of the genre. With a striking combination of the two sounds, newly signed Epic Records act HoodCelebrityy is an artist on a steady rise with a lot of heavy connections already in place.

Born in Jamaica and raised in the St. Catherine Parish, the twenty-something artist born Tina Pinnock came to the United States as a pre-teen and embraced the culture and sounds of Hip-Hop while keeping close to her birth-given roots. Things began jumping off for HoodCelebrityy in 2015 with the release of her single and video “Wine Pon It” which went viral after her longtime friend and fellow Bronx resident Cardi B posted the visuals.

Counting dancehall artist Vybz Kartel and rapper 50 Cent as her biggest influences, the ability to “deejay” or rap in dancehall vernacular and flip into traditional rhyming has become HoodCelebrityy’s calling card. She also has managed to inject the influence of trap music and merging it with dancehall deejaying, putting her above some of her peers that have tried to meld the genres in times past.

HoodCelebrityy’s appearance on the remix of French Montana’s “Famous” and the emergence of her single “Walking Trophy” making waves, the deal with Epic Records might inspire a change in the stage name from HoodCelebrityy to GlobalCelebrityy.

Barack Obama Chooses Culture Artist Kehinde Wiley To Paint His Presidential Portrait

While Donald Trump continues to go out of his way to destroy Barack Obama‘s legacy, the 44th President of The United States is choosing to have his likeness immortalized on a canvas by none other than Kehinde Wiley.

The Smithsonian’s National Portrait Gallery has announced that Kehinde Wiley has been tapped to paint the official presidential portrait of the last real President the country has known.

Kehinde Wiley is known for his large-scale portraits of young Black men wearing the latest in Hip-Hop attire. Some of his more notable work includes portraits of The Notorious B.I.G., Michael Jackson, LL Cool J and other music legends.

For the portrait of Michelle Obama, Amy Sherald has been tapped to capture the grace of the former First Lady.

Needless to say, we can’t wait to lay eyes on the final product.

Don’t be surprised if Donald Trump taps Bob Ross to do his presidential portrait when his time comes.*

[*We know.]

Thank you Mr. President.

Genius Makeup Artist Transforms Himself Into Kim Kardashian, Dakota Johnson, Other Female Celebs

Paolo Ballesteros, a 32-year-old Filipino actor, model and makeup artist, wowed the Internet last year with his jaw-dropping ability to transform himself into seemingly any female celebrity under the sun — with little more than some deftly-applied makeup.

Ballesteros is making waves yet again this month with several new transformations. He made himself up as Kylie Jenner and as the newly-blond Kim Kardashian, as well as Dakota Johnson, the star of “Fifty Shades of Grey.”

Ballesteros, host of the Filipino variety show “Eat Bulaga,” told The Huffington Post in an email Tuesday that he started experimenting with celebrity makeup transformations after watching tutorials on YouTube. He made a few attempts, he said, and was “surprised” at how quickly he took to it.

Over the past few months, Ballesteros has transformed himself into several female celebrities. They include Cate Blanchett…

Ballesteros told HuffPost that the hardest part of his metamorphoses is getting the nose just right.

“My nose is smaller and shorter [than most celebrities],” he said. “It took me a while to figure out how to do it. By drawing new nostrils, it made my nose more pointy or bigger.”

Robert De Niro’s Anxiety of Influence: Remembering the Artist Premieres

Back in the 1970’s when Robert De Niro was breaking out in films–Bang the Drum Slowly, Mean Streets, Taxi Driver–his dad Robert De Niro, Sr. was a painter of note, influenced by the European modernists Manet, Matisse, and Picasso, but never to equal the fame of his actor son. By the time De Niro, Sr. died in 1993 of prostate cancer, he left behind a significant body of work, journals and other writings revealing pride in his actor son, homosexuality, and depression. Now De Niro, the son, encouraged by his Tribeca Films producing partner Jane Rosenthal put together a documentary about his father, Remembering the Artist, directed by Perri Peltz and Gita Gandhbir that will air on HBO on Monday night.

On Thursday night at the DC Moore Gallery in Chelsea, Robert De Niro’s paintings eclipsed all the stars. The actor’s friends, Christopher Walken, Thelma Schoonmaker, Regis Philbin and wife Joy praised the work. Tony Bennett, a painter, had never met De Niro’s dad, admiring the exhibit. In fact, De Niro had a show in Peggy Guggenheim’s Art of the Century gallery, a major early recognition, and continued to exhibit throughout his life. The exhibition catalogue lists his shows with bibliography and also features a 1958 ARTnews essay about the artist with photographs by Rudy Burckhardt.

Albert Kresch, a fellow painter, speaks about the artists’ milieu, the Cedar Tavern, as a mecca for abstract expressionists like Kline, DeKooning, and Pollock, noting that De Niro would have nothing to do with it, feeling himself superior, as art world tastes shifted toward the commercial and pop Warhol, Lichtenstein and Kelly. Little is revealed about Virginia Admiral, De Niro’s mother, a painter too of some early acclaim who met her husband studying with Hans Hofmann in Provincetown. She stopped painting, needing to be more practical, she told her son, a resonant glimpse of the talented, pioneering women of that time, and their thwarted ambitions.

At a Q&A after the MoMA screening, Gita Gandhbir said it was most difficult to make a lively film portrait when the subject is dead. With De Niro’s wistful interview at center, the documentary remembers a significant artist of his time, and stands as an eloquent tribute of son to father.
