If you don't know by now, Kanye West is both promoting a soon-to-be-released LP, So Help Me God, and his new fashion line with adidas. Both promotional projects are beginning to take a similar aesthetic look; cold, grey, futuristic warfare eroticism (that is not a bad thing in the case of these pictures by Jackie Nickerson.) And so now we have this zine, focused on the adiidas x West Yeezy Season One, athletic and apocalyptic all in one, feeding off of some of the live performance vibes Kanye has given in recent weeks.

We are all recovering from a long but memorable three days in Golden Gate Park at Outside Lands Music and Arts Festival where, for the fourth year in a row, curated art throughout the park in addition to Mike Shine and the Dr. Flotsam's Hell Brew Revue carnival set-up in the woods. We also caught performances by Kanye West, Artic Monkeys, Spoon, Tegan & Sara, Haim, The Flaming Lips, The Killers, and many more! Check out this photo recap of this year's music and musicians...

Before everyone gets all in a huffy about Kanye West and the fact that they think he is an egotistical megalomaniac, we are going to just agree to disagree with you and enjoy the fact that Mr. West has, over the course of his career, collaborated and been art directed by people like Murakami, Kaws, Morning Breath, George Condo, and now, it appears he will be working with legendary graphic artist, Peter Saville.

Kanye West, regardless of how you feel about him, is definitely in tune with proper art direction and collaborative efforts. For the video for this new track, "Black Skinhead," he enlisted director Nick Knight to create an interactive, dark, menacing visual treatment that allows the viewer to slow the track, slow the motion, all the while watching a CG-Kanye with massive necklace perform. Go have some fun...

We aren't even sure what a Magna Carta Holy Grail is supposed to be, but it sounds like its competing with whatever a Yeezus is. If you have a Samsung Galaxy, maybe you are preparing for your July 4, 12:01am listening session with Jay Z's new LP of both religious and democratic implication (and for the record, we got thrones, yeezuses, Magna Cartas, and Indiana Jones over the past 18 months from Jay and West), but for the rest of us, we have to wait for the 9th of July. In the meantime, we can verify that indeed, street, skate and fashion photpgrapher Ari Marcopoulos has shot some of the imagery for Jay's album.

This tumblr full of clever memes is exactly what it sounds like: a mash-up of scenes from Wes Anderson movies and Kanye West lyrics (and at times, lines from Anderson's movies adapted to Kanye's music videos). Both Anderson and West have an affinity for the finer things in life...
Erotica // Thursday, July 19, 2012
To celebrate the launch of her brand new magazine "25", model Anja Rubik has teamed up with Kanye West and director Barnaby Roper to create a short film dedicated to the theme of the first issue - Eroticism. The idea was to create an aesthetically beautiful version of porn.

George Condo has now been collaborating with celebrated hip-hop and pop star Kanye West for a few years now, and it looks like the fine artist has just completed the cover for West's "Thera Flu" single. The piece is unmistakenably Mr. Condo.

This Thursday, June 18, George Condo has a new show opening featuring a collection of etchings at Jack Rutberg Fine Arts in Los Angeles. Condo has been in the press over the past 12 months with the album cover work for Kanye West and the major retrospective at the New Museum in NYC.

This is a two-way street of good decisions: the Museum of Modern Art and Kanye West have teamed up for pop-superstar Mr. West to play perform at their annual Party in the Garden benefit taking place on May 10, 2011 in the MoMA's Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Sculpture Garden.
