Andrea Divirgilio / April 20, 2009

Luxury bloggers, artists and musicians have in the past weeks been captivated by the controversial photo compilation made by the french artist Arno De France. The photo compilation to Mickey Avalon’s “So Rich, So Pretty” has generated over 100,000 views within a week and is likely to gain popularity in the coming months. The video includes rare photos of Karl Lagerfeld, Pharrel Williams, Madonna, Kanye West and other artists.

As an artist Arno drew his inspiration from the likes of David LaChapelle and Terry Richardson, photographers who gave him an insight into the contradictory art of sophistication and grunge.

By compiling these two intense factors in a graphical masterpiece, Arno depicts a liberated lifestyle that contains no boundaries. Such liberation he says is controversial, but also glamorous in the most understated way.

Arno compiled a video showcase feature which reflects his style of art in a slideshow complementing Mickey Avalon’s “So Rich, So Pretty” hit.

Since moving to Cannes Arno has been motivated to establish his name in the world of art, aspiring to open his own gallery and develop his artistic interests further.
