Kanye West has apparently revealed to New York Magazine new artwork for his upcoming fifth LP My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. Painted by George Condo, the artist behind the five other covers for ‘Ye’s album, this latest piece of artwork had been dubbed “The Priest”. Condo discussed the inspiration for this most recent piece for Mr. West.
“[Kanye and I] talked about paintings in the early baroque era depicting religious figures, and wanted to push that out into the open in today’s world,” Condo said. “It mirrors the ‘paranoid’ riff on one of the tracks.”
