Jean-Michel Basquiat Auction at Christie’s

Jean-Michel Basquiat: Works from the Collection of Alexis Adler

Many never before seen (& contested) art from JMB.

I’m especially drawn to the music notation, notes and journaling contained in the Mead Notebook.

“I was broke. I had breakfast and a few phonecalls in my pocket. I had some kind of cold & my mouth looked like it. I wondered if it smelled like it.”

Does Jonathan Ive send checks to Dieter Rams? The Apple iMac VS Braun LE1 is what killed it for me. That and the perforated aluminum used on the Braun T1000 radio, nearly 50 years before the PowerMac G5.

Deuce Gangsta made the song What About The Move? back in 2005. The song’s authentic rawness inspired us to shoot a video for it in January 07. We had an unrelated meeting with the creative resources manager at MRM (the agency of record for Verizon) in June 07. During our meeting the creative resources manager sent samples of our work to the Creative Director for the Verizon account. The Verizon/Samsung Juke Phone commercial (above) first aired in October 07. We don’t blame Verizon nor do we blame Samsung – they should get their money back from MRM. We do hold the Creative Director, the Director and the Art Director who were inspired enough by our hard work to bite our style and use our video as ‘reference.’ Sadly, in the advertising industry this happens all the time. Ultimately, it’s a small thing to a Giant, and we have stacks upon stacks of ideas – next time call us and we might sell you one. In the meantime we find solace in the words of the great Raekwon the Chef and Ghostface Killah:

What About The Move?

The new Mazda spot is a direct rip of Feist’s highly choreographed video. Not only do I detest lazy Art Directors but, when are Ad Agencies going to stop using Gospel to sell products. Take a cue from The Church’s Fried Chicken Gospel Dinner Box – it is NOT a good look.
