David LaChapelle

American artist David LaChapelle (b. 1968) has received numerous awards and distinctions for his glamorous, brightly colored erotic photographs, advertising campaigns and music videos. This “Fellini of photography”, as he was referred to in the New York Times Magazine, began his career as a photographer for Andy Warhol’s Interview magazine at the age of 17. Since then the artist, who lives and works in New York and Los Angeles, has continued to attract attention with imaginative photographs for renowned fashion and society magazines and with his provocative portraits of prominent personalities from the world of pop set in opulently staged surroundings. LaChapelle received special recognition for his extravagant, body-focused and visionary music videos such as the furious documentary “Rize” (2005) about young dancers in the ghettos of Los Angeles. In the Montblanc Art Bags series, the artist created the “All American” design, a garish and exaggerated reflection of the “American way of life”.
