The Pharrell Williams W Magazine art issue cover story is lensed by photographer Joshua White's. The RnB singer, hip hop producer and fashion icon is captured in a studio close-up while wearing his signature oversized hat accessory, shown here in charcoal grey.

In addition to his status as a musical and style icon, the star is also known for his love or modern art. With a vast collection of Japanese toy sculptures and contemporary painted works, Pharrell Williams recently curated Toronto's own Design Exchange exhibit entitled "This is Not a Toy".

The Pharell Williams W Magazine art issue cover defies convention. The star poses for a portrait that is layered with bent metal coil, a seemingly random object that references the star's ability to add his own modern twist on tradition.
