This season has been very busy and one with many new forays for self-proclaimed creative genius, Kanye West. The distinguished rapper has earned himself a new title in the new issue of Carine Roitfeld‘s CR Fashion Book – that of “art curator.” Inspired by Jolie Laide, West has curated a diverse range of works featuring artists such as Richard Prince, Anish Kapoor, Paul McCarthy and Cecily Brown. The full collection, titled “Blud Rush,” is in issue 6 of CR Fashion Book which is available on newsstands now. Never short of creative endeavors, Yeezus has provided an accompanying text in the article. Enjoy an excerpt below.
I am moved by visions that feel very physical, very aggresive –where the body is molded and shaped, twisted and beaten into existence. Within these works, I locate my affinity for — or maybe my addiction to — the body.
