Art Imitates Life

March 25th, 2010 Posted by Janelle comments (19)

When it comes to inspirations Vogue Hommes international, always thinks outside the box and in their latest issue they pay tribute to the unique style of Jean-Michel Basquiat with a special editorial. Ty Ogunkoya stars as the late artist, while Cedric Buchet shoots the biographical story – moving from Basquiat’s days as a graffiti artist, to his eventual conquering of the 80s art scene. Each member of the team brought something special to this story: Ty is cast perfectly in this role and brings the right blend of attitude and insouciance to his pictures and Anastasia Barbieri‘s styling combines the latest menswear with Basquiat’s signatures, like paint splattered trousers.
