Rihanna's 8th record "Anti" has art! (thanks to Roy Nachum that is)
Roy Nachum is a contemporary artist. Nachum studied at the Cooper Union School of Art in New York and is living and working New York City. Roy Nachum is a painter, sculptor and installation artist. He experiments with human perception. He sees his work as an “eye opener”.
In recent works Nachum has experimented with Braille, building up the surface of the canvas with sculpted paint squares. He encourages people to touch and interact with the work, believing that human interaction keeps the work alive and breaks the barrier between viewer and the “sacred object”.
The artist often paints subjects, whose vision is obscured, like the recurring image of a child with his eyes covered by a gold crown, representing man’s blindness caused by displaced values and desire.
His works have been collected by many prominent art collectors and celebrities, such as: Jay Z, Sir Phillip Green, Leonardo DiCaprio, Justin Timberlake, Alicia Keys & Swizz Beatz, and Rihanna.
