Pharrell: A Fish Doesn't Know It's Wet

A colorful and tasteful document of one of the most influential figures in contemporary music and popular culture.



Following Rizzoli's bestseller Pharrell: Places and Spaces I've Been, this book documents the ongoing adventures in art and design of one of the most influential figures in contemporary music and popular culture.

Lavishly illustrated with 250 photographs and illustrations, this book showcases Pharrell Williams' prolific and ever-growing body of work in a graphic language all its own.

The creative output of Pharrell Williams, which lies midway between art, design and hip-hop, is without parallel. By playing with different disciplines - music, fashion and contemporary art - Pharrell has redefined the role of the contemporary artist and paved a path for other musicians and cultural figures. This book extends the themes from Places and Spaces I've Been to include a new group of contributors. In conversation with Pharrell, such diverse talents as Karl Lagerfeld and Takashi Murakami place Pharrell's work within contemporary visual and material culture.

The worldwide success of the song "Happy" and his soundtrack and production credit for the Oscar-nominated film Hidden Figures are the introduction to a volume dedicated to Pharrell's mastery of artistic collaboration. The book includes work with artists as diverse as JR, Alex Katz, Mr. and Daniel Arsham and highlights recent projects and designs for Chanel, Moncler, Moynat and Adidas. But at its core is the visual language Pharrell has built around his Ice Cream/Billionaire Boys Club clothing line, which integrates streetwear into the design of clothing, accessories, limited-edition toys and skate graphics. This alone makes the book a must-have collectible.
