The Boy is Back: David LaChappelle Returns

junkyardarts May 10, 2010 Comments Off on The Boy is Back: David LaChappelle Returns

In news that sent me into a happiness-frenzy today, rumor has it enfant terrible David LaChappelle is returning to fine art after decades of commercial and fashion work.

LaChappelle, known for his surrealist and hypersexualized portraits of celebrities and fashion spreads has been met with both high praise and disdain throughout his career.  Refusing to conform to fine art standards required of the fine art community and chuffing in the face of whatever group at the time seemed to be offended by his work – LaChappelle’a return is welcome news.  Not exactly sure what he will come up with next, but it’s safe to say he’s got some pretty solid roots in which his work can branch off from.  I, for one, and on the edge of my seat.
