After previewing the episode earlier this week, finally we’re treated to a dialogue between Pharrell and two important contemporary artists: Karim Rashid and Kenny Scharf. Rashid is an industrial designer, interior designer and architect, whose work creatively integrates a sense of fun, mischief, and even sexuality into normally mundane items such as couple’s bathtubs, bright red asymmetrical sofas, kissing candle sticks and more. On the other hand, Scharf is a painter by trade and a contemporary of Keith Haring, creating large animated murals in his own “pop surrealist” style. Together with Pharrell, the three create a formidably intellectual discussion on whether an artist is born or made, style interfering with true function, and elitism in art. Without further ado, enjoy the latest episode of ARTST TLK above.
