Santigold has just revealed the cover art for her eagerly anticipated sophomore album release Master of My Make-Believe which is set for a May 1st. The artwork for the follow up to her Santogold debut which is based on 18th-century British artist Joshua Reynolds’ “Portrait of an Officer” was shot by Jason Schmidt and features Santigold in the role of the gold wearing attendants, a distinguished army officer in a painting (by the artist Kehinde Wiley) and as a godfather type mafia Don.
After the jump take a look behind the scenes at the making of the album cover.
Here at Poetic Phases, the mission is too expose the youth and adults to the true essence and beauty of what poetry,music,art, and fashion have to offer. The goal is to infect the minds of individuals with awesome creativity strategies and skills, so that they may be able to build up their own foundation to express themselves through the sound of music, though the mouth of words, and through paintings. Poetic Phases does interviews on upcoming artists, exposes and promotes paintings and any type of artwork from upcoming painters and art designers, music (all types) from upcoming artists and musicians, and of course promotes philosophical and poetic elements that come from the hands and mouths of those that have something to share or say. Poetic Phases is all about teaching people how to be themselves by having creativity, and the motivation and drive to reach their life goals, dreams, and ambitions. WE ARE POETIC PHASES!!
