A spotlight on the work of New York artist David Hammons in the latest issue of Purple Fashion

“If you know who you are then it’s easy to make art. Most people are really concerned about their image. Artists have allowed themselves to be boxed in by saying “yes” all the time because they want to be seen, and they should be saying “no”. I do my street art mainly to keep rooted that “who I am”. Because the only thing that’s really going on is in the street; that’s where something is really happening”. The legendary American artist David Hammons in an interview from 1986.

Olivier Zahm shot his works featuring a text by Bill Powers in the latest issue: discover more about the works of this incredible artist on purple.fr now here.
