Where can you find Dan Flavin/Vladimir Tatlin, Ethiopian scifi, and Albrecht Durer all in one? This video.

From over a year ago-- I suppose because he's Ethiopian-Canadian R&B he gets to quietly drop art references and nobody gives a stink about it (unlike Jay-Z & Picasso Baby, which is as much PR for Jay-Z as it is the Contemporary Art world, whose square heads racistly-classistly moaned and groaned about his validity as an artist. Puhlease, get over yourselves.)

Look for the art references:
Dan Flavin, “monument” for V. Tatlin, 1969

Albrecht Dürer, Self-Portrait as Christ, 1500
Speaking of which, next time I'll blog about artist-as-Christ identifications. Yeezus, anyone?
