THE SIMPLE THINGS SHINE AT ART BASEL
What do Takashi Murakami, Pharrell Williams, and Jacob the Jeweler have in common? In a collaboration over two years in the making the three artists in their respective fields paired to realize "The Simple Things", Art Basel's hottest item. Sold within the first 20 minutes of the fair for a reported $2 million the mouth of the Mr. DOB sculpture holds pavé items of the things Williams holds most dear. In this video hear Pharrell discuss the work in his own words.
