The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air is back in The Graham Norton Show!
Will Smith is such a performer, and he definitely knows how to treat his public. While on BBC, he performed a small rap duet with his son Jayden.
And he doesn’t stop there: he brought with him DJ Jazzy Jeff and the amazing Alfonso Ribeiro (Carlton Banks) with his unique moves. His famous dance totally steals the whole show! There’s no one greater than Carlton when it comes to dance, and we are huge fans.
There’s so much nostalgia in it, and at BF, we’re already dreaming of a new prince of Bel-Air!
Let’s go back a few years before to talk about Kidult, graffiti artist known for its committed acts against luxury.
He put his print on New York, Paris and Hong-Kong, with graffiti on shops’ walls in places where the luxury advocates its values. He denounces the use (theft) of the graffiti and its street core values by some brands which take advantage of its success and use it against its initial purpose, for instance LVMH which used it under Marc Jacobs’ lead.
“All these retail outlets have once used graffiti as a commercial tool to get more money and be “cool” without knowing anything about the culture. I didn’t simply say “hello” to them. If they really like graffiti, I just gave them what they love”. (Kidult)
Although he has his own touch, making graffiti with an extinguisher allowing him to reach high heights, he also deviates posters and billboards from their meanings in a clean, simple style and a clear message. His art is above all provocative, it denounces, raises questions and shocks, that we do not forget that before being cool “graffiti is an art which settles down anywhere, wildly, where that disturbs”.
