Jay-Z Art Collaboration Debuting at Art Miami


As most of us in the industry will be flying down to Miami after we stuff our belly’s with warm turkey next week for Miami’s Art Basel, those going can expect the world premiere of David Datuna’s Jay-Z/Picasso: Opposition of Imaginations, in collaboration with Jay-Z, debuting at Art Miami on December 3.  Datuna who views Jay-Z as a “modern day Picasso,” was inspired by Jay-Z’s new Magna Carta album, including his song “Picasso, Baby.”

Datuna created a one-of-a-kind mixed media wall sculpture which expresses the evolution of art with a distinct comparison between Jay-Z and Picasso – two artists of different generations. The wall sculptures are made up of glasses, allowing viewers to look through the lenses and formulate their own interpretation of the piece.

Positioned to look at each other eye-to-eye, the Jay-Z and Picasso works were created as a symbol of illusion and perceptions. Datuna uses this piece as a vehicle to force individuals to re-examine themselves and the work of art, pushing them to see more than just the mere images.
