Who knew so many people were into high-class art? 😳
In the campaign the couple is featured in front of a never-before-seen painting from Jean-Michel Basquiat’s private collection called Equals Pi.
For the campaign, the painting has been reimagined in signature Tiffany Blue, and it was reportedly bought by Tiffany’s from a private seller
This campaign marks the first public appearance for the painting, and according to the release, it was included because art serves as a “common thread throughout the Carter’s love story.”
However, many critics have taken to social media to call out the couple for the use of the painting.
A different person was upset with the lavish flaunting of money.
“They been hiding a Basquiat for decades just to use it for a Tiffany’s ad?” someone asked.
It was the use of the painting in an advertisement for a different critic.
This person remarked on the fact that art becomes a commodity so quickly these days.
Although, not everyone is against the use, and this person shared their thoughts on how no one can speak on behalf of Basquiat.
Jay-Z has always been open about his love of Basquiat and his work, and even references the artist in multiple songs.
