Since the swift, sad passing of Michael Jackson there has been an interest in Michael Jackson art and objects.
Recently Interview magazine has teamed up with low brow artist KAWS to create a fun editorial featuring the Prince of Pop.
KAWS worked on top of a portrait of Michael Jackson and wrapped his â€œbendyâ€ character around him. The final product is young and fun, just like Michael would like.
Implications - The death of certain celebrities who achieved icon status in life has significant impacts on consumerism, as companies across a variety of industries capitalize on the widespread communal grief that these tragic events incite in the public sphere.
