Sorry for the slow blog posting, we’re in Switzerland for a special moment. Today at the opening of the fair in Basel, Pharrell was on hand to show his collaboration piece with Takashi Murakami named “The Simple Things”. The piece sold in less than a half hour!
Emmanuel Perrotin, Pharrell Williams and staff blessing the piece before the fair opened:
