It’s a diptych, featuring one bright, crisply rendered profile of Drake as a youngster facing another of the artist as an adult, each head positioned against a blue, cloud-dotted sky.
If the image’s hyper-realism looks familiar, well it’s probably because the Washington-born Nelson has been an almost ubiquitous art-world presence for the past 15-plus years. It’s Nelson who did the striking cover art forMichael, the King of Pop’s posthumous 2010 release; and whose imaginative power has been tapped by clients as varied as the U.S. Postal Service, Coca-Cola, Scholastic Books and, in the mid-nineties, TV’s Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. – GlobalGrind
