Art HK ’12: David LaChapelle – “Seismic Shift” @ Paul Kasmin

When attending top-tiered fairs such as Art HK, one can expect to encounter many notable works by some of the top names in the industry. Once in a while, a piece will stop you to take a closer look. Famed photographer David LaChapelle submitted a photograph that took front and center at Paul Kasmin’s booth. Entitled Seismic Shift, the ginormous photograph measured ten by four feet and it wasn’t the size that caught our eye, but its contents. LaChapelle’s latest creation drew upon many of the current significant artists in contemporary art such as Takashi Murakami, Jeff Koons, Damien Hirst, Yue Minjun, Babara Kruger, Andreas Gursky, and of course Andy Warhol.
