Black man does ‘Marcel Duchamp’ and gets flack for it
Jesse Boykins III (b.1985) is a Grammy-nominated multi-disciplinary artist today mainly focusing on Music, and Film. Any one who likes chess and naked ladies (not necessarily in that order) and who even writes and sings about it is always welcome here on my blog!
Getting Flack for the Cover Photo
“The “B4 The Night Is Thru” picture is inspired by Marcel Duchamp photo that was actually a reflection of a photo I saw; the photo was black and white but there were lights reflecting on it so it was green and crazy. So I researched these lights and Marcel Duchamp and I found out [Duchamp] was sculpting the woman he was photographing with they were taking a break and he was playing a game of chess against his inspiration.
I find that to be life the thing that you’re inspired by is also the thing you’re threatened by or overcome to beat. A lot of people don’t look at it like that. I get a lot of flack for it, which is respected, but people don’t buy that. I remember when it was released. That’s what the cover was inspired by.”
