George Condo and Philip Taaffe

Philip Taaffe, Cape Zephyr, 2007

George Condo, Ballerina for My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy (Kanye West), 2010

George Condo, the artist commissioned to paint Kim Kardashian’s Birkin bag, has always had a knack for teaming up with culturally relevant movers-and-shakers (whatever the decade and form of expression) to both inspire his work and add luster to his career; but for my money, Philip Taaffe is a much more interesting artist from the same generation. I strongly recommend that Kanye team up with Taaffe for his next album – and handbag.
